BRISTOL, ENGLAND - AUGUST 10: (EDITORS NOTE: EMBARGOED UNTIL 0001 THURSDAY AUGUST 11, 2016) An adult gorilla looks out from 'Gorilla Island' that is shared with Afia the newest baby gorilla at Bristol Zoo on August 10, 2016 in Bristol, England. Afia, the hand reared Western lowland gorilla who was born at the zoo by emergency C-section on February 12 is taken out onto the island daily to help build her confidence and awareness of what will eventually become her new home. Although Afia's mother Kera, still isn't aware that Afia is hers it is hoped that the young gorilla who is enjoying a varied diet of sweet potato, leafy lettuce and pellets, will continue to get to know her family under the watchful eyes of her dedicated keepers.

It looks like North Carolina has the largest Zoo in the world…wow! The good thing is this zoo is right outside of Charlotte, located in Asheboro, NC just about 2 hours out. This zoo is about 2,000 acres of land and carries over 1,60o animals from 250 different species. A whole day spent at the Zoo with your family or friends sounds very productive.

The good thing about North Carolina Zoo is that it is open year round to the public,.

As long as I been here in Charlotte, I’ve yet to go to the Zoo but, all I hear is good things about it. So I’m thinking this might be a nice little road trip to take over the weekend.
