Cheetahs and Warthogs and Rhinos, Oh My!

Hubby, daughter, daughter's boyfriend, son, and I went to the Cincinnati Zoo this past Sunday. They've made some good changes--expanded parking, new areas for some of the animals, new exhibits--since our last visit three years ago.

One of the coolest new exhibits is the cheetah show. Using a fuzzy toy, the keepers lure the cheetah in a greyhound-like chase in the enclosure. These animals are amazing to see running at full speed in person.

We also saw an adorable warthog. He was incredibly smart!

And the Sumatran rhino enjoyed a mud bath, rolling and splashing while we were there.

I highly recommend a visit if you're in the area!
