Next year the Kansas City Zoo will have two visitors from the San Diego zoo.
The visiting koalas will spend their summer vacation in the new Discovery Barn that was expanded this past year.
Their vacation will cost the zoo about $35,000 and eucalyptus flown in twice per week to quench their palette. (Sounds to me like they will be enjoying a high rise condo and feasting on prime rib.)
Those fuzzy visiting dignitaries go on exhibit on March 31 and will be quite a pleasing temporary addition to the zoo.
The Kansas City Zoo celebrates it's 100th anniversary in 2009 and has seen massive improvements over the past few years.
Too bad we couldn't find them a permanent home for sale in Kansas City, Missouri.
