Labor Day at the Greensboro Natural Science Museum


We had a great time today.  The tiger was beautiful and wasn't shy.  The tiger would "talk" to one of the zoo keepers.  The zoo keeper told us he was used to her and she would growl in anticipation of dinner.

Here are some pictures of Euri the anteater.  Euri is 7 feet long (a lot of it being his tail), 135 pounds, and he eats 30,000 ants each day.  I have never seen an anteater close up.  He had very interesting markings and was fun to see.  Euri was slow moving and didn't seem to have a care in the world.




We spent about an hour inside the museum and saw some dinosaur bones, some reptiles, and some other interesting science exhibits.  We spent about 3 hours there total and plan on gong back soon.

It was a good way to end the holiday weekend!
