  •  On Friday we visited the Fort Worth Zoo (7+ / 0-)

    They have a Raptor Canyon, and the cages are so situated that you walk through a sort of cage tunnel where the birds  can be over your heads.

    We walked through right after feeding time. A King vulture perched right over our heads and proceeded to feed on a rat, while in a separate enclosure (also right over our heads) two African crowned eagles fought over the carcass of a small rabbit. Bits of fur drifted down to our feet. Yikes!

    A man coming through the exhibit right after us quipped "there goes the Easter bunny!"
