The Minnesota Zoo is one of my family's favorite places to visit, but we hadn’t been there this year, so we were surprised to see the new kangaroo exhibit.

The “Kangaroo Crossing” exhibit is really cool because you actually get to walk into the enclosed area and get super close to the kangaroos. How close? This guy was resting on the walking trail so my son got to pet him. He was super excited to see the roos.

Learn more here on the Zoo’s website.

Here are the “Kangaroo Crossing” daily activities:

•  Wings Financial World of Birds Show featuring Coconut and more!
• Walkabout Grill with Australia-themed food and beverages
• Weekly “Jump Squad” appearances at the Zoo

You can also arrange Australian themed birthday parties.
