So I decided not to go to the zoo. I figured that the tank of gas it would cost me to get there and back again would be better spent driving to work and back several times once the vacation ends. Also I would have had to pay ten bucks to get in and would have likely needed to buy two meals while away from the apartment today. Instead I was here and ate for free. Twice.
And instead of going to see the animals live and up close, I assume that I can see the same creatures in pictures found on Wikipedia. So here are some of the animals that I would have seen, had I gone to the NC Zoo.
