Spelunking: BATs Visit The Zoo


For our spring family outing, BAT visited Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo on Saturday. Katie Forney, Shawn Rorie, Steve Barnes, Phillip Kimsey, Stephen Sinclair, Krysten Parrish, Ashley Jankowski, Eric Damon, Anthony Harder, Benjamin Caldwell and their families enjoyed seeing the fish, gorillas and even real bats.

We hosted our Christmas party at the zoo’s Scott Aquarium two years ago. We love going back to the zoo because there is always so much to see there and everyone, both young and old, always has a great time.

The zoo spans 130 acres and includes thousands of animals from all over the globe.

The best part of the visit for Anthony was the Cat Complex. While in this section, he got to see and hear a lion roar for the first time!


Real bats!


In the Lied Jungle, Eden (Shawn’s daughter) and Franco (Ashley’s son) show they can hang like bats and orangutans.
