Visited the Jax zoo on Saturday. Here are photos from my trip. I saw quite a few animals for the first time including the anteater, zebra, okapi, komodo dragon, otter, lemur, bonobo, tapir, wallaby and gorilla. While I enjoyed the trip, I have to say that it was very very hot. The zoo has various loops based on continents- Australia, Asia, Africa, South America.
