    Sea Lion going to my son, El Paso Zoo, Texas

    We just got back from the El Paso Zoo, and now we are eating at a nice taco place here in El Paso.
    The kids loved looking at the animals at the 28-acre (soon to be 38-acre) zoo, especially the African elephants! However, the African part of the zoo was still being built (as of April 2009 when we were there), but we were able to see the Asian jungle and also the seals. The seals have a three-level complex where you can see the seals through bright windows.

    On the upper level of the Sea lion complex, there is the “World of the Sea Lion” watershow everyday at 1045 AM and 245 PM.

    The zoo has 12 acres of exhibit and shows more than 240 exhibits including orangutans, leopard, sun bears and even a spider monkey island (they were all huddled together by the water though because they were sleeping).

    The entrance was only $3 for the kids (3-12 yo), and $5 for 13-61 yo and $4 for those 62 yo and up…
