Newborn, Daniel, born Jan 9th, 2011.

Mishy and I haven’t been to the Santa Barbara Zoo yet, but we are terribly excited to go. Mishy is fascinated by giraffes and they have daily giraffe feedings from 11:30AM-2:30PM. They also recently announced the birth of Daniel, born on January 9th, 2011. He weighed 109 lbs and measured 5 feet, 9 inches tall. He will not be available for viewing for several weeks.

They also have baby otters.

For the people in your life who are fans of Princesses, they have an upcoming Princess Day.


Saturday, 3/12, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (9 a.m. Entry for SB Zoo Members Only)

Free with Zoo admission.

They jump! They sing! They turn into princes (though this is extremely rare). What better time than the day the clocks “spring forward” to celebrate the world’s many and varied frogs and amphibians? There are frog-inspired crafts, games and special animal appearances. All costumed princesses welcome – meet Cinderella, Snow Whiteand Sleeping Beauty! Plus, find out how Amphibian Ark and zoos and aquariums are working together to save the world’s amphibians.

They also have a Zoo Train, Carousel, Kellman Family Center, Barnyard, among other very fun activities and locations within the zoo!

I am happy to be able to give away a family pass (up to 4 people). Please leave a comment to enter. This giveaway ends on midnight on January 31st, 2011.
