Trip to the Zoo-Hannah Arnold

This semester, the Honors Program offered a chance for students to go to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. While there, we were lucky enough to take part in a behind the scenes tour where we saw tigers, lions, and giraffes up close; most of us even petted a giraffe named Louis! From our tour guides, we learned different facts about the animals and exhibits in the zoo. They explained to us that since their lions come from a region in Africa, the rock in their exhibit is actually heated and that is why they always lay on it during the cold months. When visiting the aquarium, we watched the penguin walk, where different types of penguins actually walk around the park. We were able to see about four different types of penguins on this walk. It was a great experience and we had a fantastic time getting to see all the animals at the zoo.
