On our crash road trip to Nebraska for a funeral we did get in a little sight seeing. I have wanted to visit Horn T Zoo in Monroe, Nebraska since I first heard of it.
The man who started the zoo was a kindergarten student of my mother-in-law! And here he is with his baby monkey. This little guy was so cute, made you want to just sneak him in your purse and take him home.
But then there was this little kangaroo already in a purse and just ready for me to grab and go! Ha! While we weren’t allowed to touch the monkey, the baby kangaroo loved to be petted. I was amazed at how he never, ever leaves the purse.
Included in the price of the zoo was the hay ride and choosing a pumpkin. The kids had a blast picking the perfect pumpkin. After riding back to the barn there was a table set up so that the kids could paint their pumpkins. If only we could have brought them all home. We were just packed too tight in the RAV4.
Joy’s favorite thing was holding the Guinea Pigs. They begged me to bring one home. I had to think about that one for a long time…NOT! 🙂 But I was so happy she got to hold them here!
These were just a few of the array of exotic animals to see at Horn T Zoo. There were also lemurs, big cats, monkeys, birds, porcupines and so much more. The staff/owners were more than happy to answer all of our questions. I learned so much.
Horn T Zoo is open Saturdays and is $10 per person. Check their Facebook page fore details. Saturdays in October bounce house, huge slide, and concession stand is also available for an extra fee.
