Being at the St. Louis Zoo butterfly house, yesterday, July 25th, reminded me of the post that follows.  Some twenty years since my last visit, much had changed.  The exhibits were modernized, animals displayed in more natural habitats.

It was crowded, on a very hot, humid day.  Many of the animals couldn’t be seen–because they were holed up in cool shade somewhere.  They were smarter than most of the human gawkers.

The zoo wasn’t as much fun for me this time as when accompanied by young children and grandchildren.  I appreciate creature comforts more and don’t walk as fast.  However, there’s hope for the future, from the number of families observed in the park.  And, the St. Louis Zoo still doesn’t charge admission.
