The Cutest and Derpiest Animals of Bearizona

Located just 30 minutes from our lovely home for the week in Flagstaff, Bearizona offers a day full of laughs, education, and adventure. We’ve experienced our fair share of zoos, but this one offers a unique experience–you get to drive through the animal habitats! During our drive, we had a black bear saunter right up to the car door, and she (or he) even gave us a love tap! At the end of the driving portion, you can also visit a beautiful walking zoo, which gave my family an opportunity to learn about a variety of fascinating animals. As you’ll see, Bearizona is also full of hilarious characters! Why did so many creatures stick their tongue out at me?! We received complimentary access to the park, but everything shared here is based on our honest opinions.

You’ve got to see our hotel in Flagstaff.

We had so much fun while staying in Flagstaff! The drive through zoo, Bearizona is just a short drive from our hotel, Little America.

The 2019 Kia Sorento entered the drive-thru zoo with windows down and wide-eyed teens anxious to see all the animals. It only took a few minutes before we were greeted by a rather shabby, sheepish creature going through a rough molt, but smiling regardless. Reindeer, wolves, bears, and bison were also seen on our tree-lined route. Just remember to keep your windows up and doors locked–yes the bears can open doors–when making your way through the wolf and bear habitats. Scenes from Jurassic Park were floating through my head as we looked out each car window, including the Sorento’s massive panoramic sunroof to see animals, even in the trees.

I can see you, Clarence. You’re a bear!

Bear shaming. This raven told this bear to share his food and the result was hilarious. Bearizona is full of funny animal antics!

I’m not happy about this. It’s just my face.

Ugh, I feel for this guy. You know that infernal feeling of when your sock is only half on and if it’s not remedied immediately it’s only a matter of seconds before you’re completely mad? Yeah. He’s a far better sport about whatever is going on with his situation.

What is this guy? He's so happy and such a mess! Bearizona is full of hilarious creatures!

If you’re planning a trip to Arizona, Bearizona needs to be on your list of places to visit. You can find out about the animals, how to donate, admission prices, and membership on their website. But, nothing beats meeting these hilarious derpy guys in person.

I wish we had spent more time in Flagstaff when vacationing in Arizona. Most of the time was spent in Phoenix but there is so much to take in elsewhere too. I love all the cute animal pictures.
