    Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

    I always loved going to zoos as a child, in fact, I still love going to zoos because I love animals.  I always want to see the penguins, they are so cute, as they waddle around and dive into the pools.  And the wolves are also a favorite of mine, we have a wolf at our...

    Well--I Like One Zoo, the Como...

    Well--I like one zoo, the Como Zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota.  It's free, has cool animals (even baby giraffes sometimes!), and it's right in the middle of the city.  The Minnesota Zoo, however--no thanks.  Costs more to park there than it costs for an entire day at...

    Zoo June 3rd 2010 (pics)

    I visited the zoo this past week and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The weather was fair.  It wasn't extremely hot. We packed up a cooler with ice, Gatorade, apple juice, and bottled watter.  Also, I have a refillable bottle I purchased last year at the zoo.  Its...

    Love to Go!

    The zoo is someplace i love to go, but don't get to as often as i'd like.  Mainly b/c the nearest one is about an hour or more away.  The good ones are at least 2 or more hours away.  The animals are just so fun to watch!  The monkeys are especially funny...

    Stopping Animals From Becoming Extinct

    There was as time when I thought it was cruel to keep large animals in cages but have come to realise that if it wasn't for Zoo's then several endangered animals would be extinct as they are only surviving in Zoo's. Where I live in UK I am happy to be near 2 of the best Zoo's...

    The Zoo Is a Great Place

    I would love to make it to any zoo at least once a year. It's harder now with gas prices being so high. I'm pretty sure that the best/closest zoo to me is the National Zoo in DC. Two years ago my friends and I went for my birthday. I had an amazing time! THEY EVEN HAD COWS THERE...

    I Love the Zoo!

    The zoo is one of my most favorite places to go!  I love seeing all different kinds of animals especially ones I never knew existed!  It's really fun.  I wish I could pet them all!  But I know you can't.

    Mixed Feelings

    The zoo has always been a special treat for me. In my adult hood I started to have mixed feelings since so many of the animals are no where near their natural homes or habitats... But if you really research it, frequently zoos are taking the time to give the animals what they...

    Always

    I have always loved the zoo. The Houston Zoo used to have this awesome aquarium tunnel, so you could walk under all the fish. I was so sad when that went away. What is really cool at the Houston Zoo now is that they have monkeys that run about wild, not in cages. Volunteers...

    I'm going to the zoo with my beautiful family

    to look at animals and drink hot colas. We don't spend much time together so It will be intense. We will also sing kumbaya, as will sit on picnic tables. I usually do not like to do these activities, but from the gentleness of my heart and in the name of family I conceded and...

    Animal Home Video.

    HAHAHAHA! I went to the Zoo with my friends last year and i saw two giant turtles humping. The sounds they made were out of this world. I could hear their shells "clanking" against each other. It's like Animal Planet up close and personal. HEH :)

    A Long Time

    I have not been to a zoo in such a long time but I love animals.  My favorite to visit at the zoo has always been the Gorillas.  They can be so funny.  I was watching a female walk past a male one day and he reached out and popped her on the butt.  She...

    Has a young boy, for me there was no greater place than the zoo. At every available opportunity I would beg my parents to take me to the zoo. Up until today they still cant fathom why I liked going to the same place and seeing the same animals all the time. To tell you the truth...

    When my husband and I were first married he brought me down to visit his relatives in Brooklyn, NY. While we were there he took me to one of his favorite places, Prospect Park Zoo. The zoo is a very old one and many of the animals were kept in old-fashioned cages with iron bars...
