: Maggie and I just got back from the Santa Ana Zoo. It was quite an effort, but I managed to make our trip last 2 1/2 hours. We visited all the animals twice and each of us had a snack. This zoo had a lot of monkeys, some llamas, an emu and various little critters. The best part was actually the farm because we could get close enough to the animals that I felt Maggie was actually looking at them. They had a "giant" rabbit which was actually very big (large cat sized), pigs, sheep, goats and a parrot that said "cock-a-doodle-doo" (I swear! It certainly wasn't the owl in the cage).

I was disappointed, but not surprised, that the "elephant pavilion" on the map did not house an elephant. In fact, it didn't house an elephant house. It looked like a place where you could ride an elephant, but I don't where they would have gotten or kept an elephant to ride on.

Anyway, the zoo was $6, which was a bargain considering you have to pay $5 to park at the park around here and it was shadier than the park.
