I like the tiger. We've been there when it's jumped up against the glass wall. He also likes to walk back and forth in front of that glass wall. It's really neat to be so close to him.... and yet know that he can't hurt us. lol

One time when we were there ... a man would do a "call" and the tiger would come to the glass wall. It was really cool. (And we go to the same zoo that you do! Although this was quite a few years ago.)

I love the giraffes but our zoo also has some white tigers that are absolutely gorgeous. For fun you can't beat the monkeys. You never know what they're gonna do. :)
Love Basic Grey! Fingers crossed!

Erika M. said...

I'm a huge fan of animals so I have quite a list - I will tell you that Sea World is one of the best places in the world. Favorite animals: penguins, dolphins, orcas, polar bears, beluga whales - I could go on and on!

Jen said...

I love the polar bears, but the giraffes are a close second! I just wish the zoos were closer :)

kmassman said...

I love going to the zoo! My favorite is the polar bear but I love animals, in general!

Jennifer L. said...

Such a cute kit. I enjoy the zoo's that are more like retreats for the animals so the animals have more room to roam and are more in their natural habitat. My fave would be the big cats.

Sandra Perdomo said...

I really love all the animal and I don't like going to the zoo and see them in cages , but I undestand too that this sometimes is the only way for them to survive, Love going to acuarioum and see the dolphins and Beluga whales , I just love all God's creation , tthanks for the chance to win

Megan A. said...

we love the zoo! my favorite are the river otters.

Brittney said...

I love this new collection! My favorite part of the zoo is the gorilla enclosure. I find them so interesting to watch because they're are so like us!

Catherine said...

I LOVE the Zoo! We to go the Toronto Zoo every couple of summers. My "must visit" animal is the Capybaras. They are basically giant Guinea Pigs. Very docile and so cute! And they are prolific breeders so there are always baby ones to meet each year. Love watching them.

The last time we went we actually got to hear the lion roar. Sounds silly to be excited about that but, if you've ever heard one close up you know how amazing it is!

Can't wait for this little guy in my tummy to come out and be old enough so we can share our love of animals with him!

Linda F. said...

I love to watch the gorillas & apes! One of the zoos we go to has a playground where they play on tire swings, climb ropes, etc. I love to watch them

lillianchild said...

We live in Omaha, home to the famous Henry Doorly Zoo, and they have SO many fabulous attractions that it's hard to pick just one - but I must say that the penguins capture my heart every time! Thanks so much for the chance to win some FAB prizes!

Angie said...

My fave part of the zoo....I would have to say feeding the giraffes! I know my son loves the petting zoo section! Great GIVEAWAY!

connie said...

cute papers! my favorite part of the zoo are the monkeys and the train ride.

Jessica said...

Of course, the giraffes!! I love watching these amazing creatures. My second fav are the hippos. The zoo is a wonderful place to go and make memories to scrap! Thanks for the opp!

Gilda said...

Love all the monkeys, although chimps are my favorites. They just crack me up!

Alison said...

I love watching tigers at the zoo. They are so beautiful and so powerful.

Laura Stewart said...

I love the apes!

MarieL said...

We don't have a zoo close by, so I haven't been to the zoo in a long time. But who doesn't love animals, that's why we all keep pets. I think my favorites are dolphins but I like so many different animals.

Rosa said...

My favorite part at the zoo is seeing the girafes. They are so beautiful and graceful. They are not afraid to come close to you for a treat. Their long necks are spectacular. And the way they use their tongue to maneuver leaves out of a tree is funny. I love those little creatures.

Thank you for having a giveaway.

Rosa

~Tonya said...

Love all of the new goodies (of course)! My favorite animal in the zoo is watching the PROUD Mama Tigers with her cubs, if there are some. They are gorgeous creatures.

Thanks for the chance!

Jennifer said...

My favorite is the panda, but they're hard to come by. That's why I like San Diego's zoo!

BabyBokChoy said...

This is so cliche since I'm Chinese, but seriously, the panda bears. You can't help but feel for them when you see them, you just want to scream: Get off your lazy bums and stop eating bamboo, go "do" something so you don't go extinct already!!!! lol

Cherry47 said...

I love the lions. I'm a Leo so they are my favorite. I also love the look on my grand dauthers face when we are at the zoo.

Diana said...

Love Basic Grey. They have such beautiful papers. I love the baby animals exhibit at the zoo. They are always so cute and cuddly.
Thanks for the chance to win.

diane mcvey said...

Wow, all the new stuff is fabulous!!! I can't wait to get some!
Our zoo used to have a white tiger...it was SO beautiful. I would have to say that was my all time favorite! But I love all "big cats", and domesticated cats, too! :D

Nancy (Shady Tree Studio) said...

I've always been partial to elephants and giraffes. . . and I can't help but love watching the penguins, too :) .

Alison said...

Most definitely the "Okapi". It's like a cross between a giraffe and a zebra. I saw one when we visted the San Diego Zoo and was so intrigued with it I did a full page spread on it...
Alison

Scrapamum said...

We don't have a zoo close by so I'm going to just tell you my favorite animal. I love Kangaroos! They are so adorable.

Natalie said...

I haven't been to the zoo since I was little! If I did go again I would want to do a night tour so I can see all the nocturnal animals. Thanks for the chance!

Miss Jaster said...

Adorable papers!

My favorite animals to see at the zoo are the penguins, polar bears, & sea otters!

Isabel Sherwood said...

Thank you for the videos and newsletters; they are really helpful. Favorite animals have to be the big cats, especially on cool mornings when they are active. A close second is any animal with babies...so cute!

Pamk said...

I love to go to the Altanta zoo and see the panda's.

I haven't been to the zoo in years....my sons grew up too fast,and the nearest zoo is on the other side of the state! However, any of the big cats are my favorite zoo animals---lions and tigers.

Jennifer B. said...

Have giraffes you can feed at our zoo, that is pretty cool. Great giveaway!!!

Kim Faucher said...

Our zoo has some incredible things. My favorite is the education programs that they offer... Kids and adults have a lot of fun while learning new things about the animals. The educators are real experts and do a ton to educate the public about animals!

brenlubrant said...

My favorite animal at the zoo has always been the gurillas. It just amazes me how almost "human" like they are.

Pam said...

Great papers! My favorite part of the zoo is the penguin exhibit. They are soooo cute! i love watching them.

ScrapNSister1 said...

What a cute line! I've always loved the monkeys.

THE PRINCESS of everything ... said...

I LOVE giraffes. One time, I filled my bosses' office with all sorts of shapes, sorts & sizes- then made a really nostagic looking looking Christmas card & the punch line was that you can "never have too many giraffes!"

ireadtokids said...

I love the white tiger that is at our local zoo! But, I must admit my favorite animal was the polar bear I saw at the Ankorage Zoo I saw many years ago - what a character!

Nolwenn said...

This look just awesome !

My favourite Animals are Elephants and hipopotamus :)
But I also like Owls and Whales a lot but not in the zoo.

Laura said...

I love seeing all the different animals, but I always have to make sure I stop into the great ape house. The last time I was there I ended up playing peek-a-boo with an orangutan.

pdrnc said...

Just went to the Washington National Zoo. My kids LOVED it. We especially laughed at the gorillas and how they baby clung to the momma's back. Thanks for the chance to win.

jbetts311 said...

Well the giraffes are our favorite animals, but we really love them all!

Pam said...

Love the giraffes. Amazing to watch them walk with such grace and ease.
