Sunset Zoo -- Monkeys, Tortoise & Llama Kiss

Sunset Zoo Photo, Manhattan, Kansas

Some of the monkey viewing was inside. These enclosures were clean and well lit. We got a kick out of watching the little creatures scamper around the branches.

The Tortoises were located just outside the petting zoo area. It must have been mating season for them. We watched them for about 20 minutes and the whole time there was a large male right on the tail of a female as the two of them walked around the perimeter of their area.

And then there were the llamas. My husband almost got kissed by one.

Overall, the zoo was well kept and the animals well tended to. We proceeded through at a rather brisk pace, but for best enjoyment one should plan for a more leisurely walk-thru.

The zoo grounds were hilly, so wear tennis shoes.
