Hello to all my Steemians !!
Today I'd like to share my visit to the Orange County Zoo. This zoo is perfect for little ones who can't last a whole day at a larger zoo.
The OC Zoo is located inside the _Irvine Regional Park _ in the city of Orange. The Zoo is among the 477 acre wilderness park. The Zoo's focus is on animals and plants native to the southwestern United States.
The current zoo officially opened in 1985 as "the Irvine Regional Park Zoo", and has become a haven for injured animals and other animals that are not releasable to the wild.
Some of the first exhibits you come across as you walk in are the reptiles.
