OK it’s not near the level of the Olympic Games in Beijing. But don’t tell that to the animals at Riverbanks Zoo downtown Columbia! They’ve trained and trained and are competing effervescently every day to put on a quality show just for you. The kids love to cheer them on. If nothing else is worth visiting the Zoo just to ride the instant children attraction the Spots and Stripes Railroad miniature train. You be the judge!
Everyone said she’ll never make the Olympic team. Boy she proved them wrong! It’s such a beauty to see her conquer the pole vault. And all the monkeys are cheering and jumping the ropes as she attempts the world record!
The goats proved impenetrable at the net in the volleyball competition! It helps being constantly fed by enthusiastic kids ($0.25 cents, however I’ll save the quarters and just pick up the food laying around all over the place)!
She said this Funny Olympic Games will be her last. Such a shame to lose a queen platform diving sea lion! Don’t despair, you can still admire her and company daily at Riverbanks Zoo: Sea Lion Feeding at 10:30 AM and Sea Lion Training at 3 PM
She’s a rookie…but very talented and the pony delivers! Gold medal at the equestrian obstacle course. Pony rides are by far the main Zoo attraction for girls. They run daily from 10 AM – 3 PM and is 5 Safari Bucks per ride.
Here comes the lion in the Decathlon track and field event! The animals king looks a little rattled don’t you think? By the way the amazingly cute lions cubs where moved from the aviary exhibit. Don’t worry they’ll soon join the regular lions exhibit.
As usual it’s a nerve wrecking nail biting 4×100 medley race, the most sought after medal of all swimming events. Seems that the yellow stripped fish team has an edge at the butterfly exchange. Make sure to stick around for the Aquarium Dive Demonstration at 12:30 PM.
What wonderful animal athletes! Live the Funny Olympic spirit daily at Riverbanks Zoo!
