Teton Trek

The newest exhibit at the Memphis Zoo. Teton Trek features animals from Western America. The exhibit is based on the Yellowstone ecological system. It opened last October, but this is the first time I've been able to go.

The Great Lodge


The Geyser Fountain

A couple of Elk Statues


Wolves

Elk


And the Grizzly Bears






They were behind Plexiglass, and I wish I could have gotten a better angle so that there were no reflections, but the glass was pretty dirty. The bears would splash it, and put their paws on it and such. It was cute, but made for not so great photos.

This photo was taken from the opposite side of the enclosure.

And finally, the trumpeter swans.



More photos tomorrow.

Any Buffalo? Each time I have gone to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park there is always buffalo and mountain goats stopping traffic. It looks like they did a good job with the exhibit!
