Number 22: Zebra at The Dallas Zoo

Dallas Zoo Zebra

Number 22 is a black and white photograph of a zebra at the Dallas Zoo.  The Dallas zoo was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.  A lot of the reviews from various websites said that the Fort Worth Zoo was a better Texas zoo to go to.  Of course, like most zoos, one day it can be great because the animals are active and the next time you go half the animals are not out or they are already sleeping. We took a long weekend in October to go down to Corpus Christi Texas and one of the nights we stayed in Dallas.  The next morning we decided to go to the zoo instead of the aquarium or the art museum in Dallas. Karen knows how much I like going to zoos. One of the things in my bucket list is to go on safari in Africa.  I hope that happens someday, but as for now I will just have to stick to going to zoos.

This picture was taken at the new exhibit at the Dallas Zoo called the Giants of the Savanna.  I have to say it is probably the best African exhibit of any of the zoos that I have been to.  I really like how they have combined several species into a large area instead of having them all fenced off from each other.  They had elephants, giraffes, gazelles, and zebras all in the same area. I changed this photo to black and white to make the stripes of the zebra pop.  A person could imagine a herd of the zebras running this way and how the stripes really help distract their predators.
