What's Your Favorite Animal to Visit at the Zoo?

In America, there's really only one place you can go if you want to see tigers and giraffes in the flesh without having to take a couple of 11-hour flights.

Obviously we're talking about the zoo.

The Chicago Tribune offers a little friendly advice if you want to catch the big animals in their prime.

Arrive early, preferably when the doors open. The Columbus Zoo's website

(columbuszoo.org) says, "This is when many of the animals, especially the large mammals, are being moved from their night quarters to their outdoor habitats and they are more active." Garrison adds that it's also usually cooler and the kids are fresh.


We're pretty fond of the howler monkeys, ourselves.

    The panda bears, big cats, and anythin marine. Granted, id rather see them in the wild, but if their enclosure is close enough to a wild habitat im ok.

    My favorite animals in the zoo have always been the cats. It has always amazed me that large, wild cats like lions and tigers are almost exact replicas of domestic cats, four of which I have as pets. Dogs can't even make that claim, as their appearance differs greatly depending on what type they are.

    Do they have pigs and hedgehogs in zoos? I dunno. If not, I really love the reptile house. Snakes are frigging cool.

    My Favorite Animal is the Red panda

    But Because it's always high in the trees you can never see it. So the best animal to see at the zoo would be the Seals.

    The zoo makes me sad. All the animals look lonely and depressed. I'm sure they would be much happier out in the wild where their homes are.

    Wanna ride bikes?

    Yeah but it's because of us there stuck in zoos, overhunting.

    Zoos make me feel sad. There isnt enough space for the animals. All the animals should be free, even if it means they get eaten every now and then.
  • JeffZill Isisdron 2011/06/23 13:45:39

    There safer in zoos, look at the siberian tiger there is only about a few hundred of them left concentrated in a small area in russia. Soon they'll be gone, I agree they look nicer when they're free.

    I don't see why it is crazy to not want to see animals locked up for people to stare at... how would you like to be locked up in a cage and stared at all day...
    animals should be free....of course very little is truly free anymore and it is a sadder world because of it.
