Rosamond Gifford Zoo and the Solomon Islands

Took the girls to the zoo today! Saw the new elephant display, and bird show and found out the two parrot’s were from a small set of islands off the coast of Australia, THE SOLOMON ISLANDS! I looked at the girls and they looked right back at me in awe.

I knew the Rosamond Gifford Zoo had a Solomon Skink, but did not know they had the parrots as well until today. I was excited for sure.
