Brett had Memorial Day off (yes, the holiday in May) and so we decided to take a family trip to Tama Zoo. I'd heard it was lots of fun and well laid out, and that is true. We had a great time and saw lots of animals.

The thing that makes this zoo so cool is the affectionately named "meat bus". Basically, you get to be up close and personal with the lions. This is the "bus barn" where you get on/off the buses.
Once on you are basically locked into the bus, you are seated on a row of seats that face out. The bus is covered with windows, and just below the windows, on the sides of the bus, are large chunks of meat and bones. You are driven around the lion area, and some of the lions are laying out in the sun, totally unfazed that you are going by.
