When was the last time you went to the Zoo? Which Zoo did you go to? Would you recommend it? How does it compare to other zoos you have been to. The last one I was at was the San Antonio Zoo. I thought it was very nice. Not many good place to eat there though.

In my country we do not have zoos, yes if it sounds strange but it's true. So I only visited zoos when I traveled. Last time I went to a zoo it was in November last and we enjoyed it a lot. I liked it most because the zoo is divided in two parts, one with various animals in cages and a petting area section and another part which you can visit by car and stop looking at the animals as they are free and walking around :)

Until now I had never been into any zoo in my entire life. It's sad, I wish that back in the days that I was a child my parents at least one time had taken me to a zoo. Not even with friend or at a school arrive, never.. Maybe one of these months I'll go to one of the Zoos available

The last zoo I went to was the Atlanta Zoo and it was just last week. While I enjoy the Atlanta zoo it has nothing on Brookfield Zoo in Chicago Il, or the zoo in downtown Chicago. lots of places to eat and lots of activities for children of all ages, but again I repeat put it side by side with Brookfield zoo in Chicago and it is a dummp.

I don't really like the zoo, so it's been a couple of years since I've gone. Seeing caged animals depresses me - and not only that, but for the most part - it SMELLS bad pretty much everywhere, it's always super crowded (at least at the ones by my house!), and everything is extremely overpriced. . The only zoos I've been to are ones in Minnesota - Como Zoo & the Minnesota zoo.

I definitely agree with you.I have been to a zoo in May last year,the air in the most part of the zoo smells stink especially in some areas where they keep herbivores such as ostrichs and zebras etc.And canteens in the zoo were all selling their goods at a price as two or three times than those outside the zoo.

I just went to the San Diego Zoo in March. It was THE most amazing zoo I have ever seen. It actually had levels to it. I've never seen that in a zoo before. The best part was getting to see the pandas. They were amazing! I would definitely recommend the San Diego Zoo.

Last time I went to the zoo was about 6 months ago. My mom came out to visit and we took my son to the zoo in Hilo, HI. It is a small zoo and is free (although they do accept donations). It is a fun time and my son loves looking at all the animals. I think it is a great way to spend the day outdoors with the family.

The last zoo I went to was the Detroit Zoo I recommend most zoos to people but it is big and tiring to walk all that way. I would highly recommend the Toledo Zoo because it has nicer exhibits and more animals. The Toledo zoo has the carnivore cafe which is cool because you are eating in the old lion house!

I went to zoo long back 2 years ago in my city.It is very big zoo contains white tiger,white peacock,different birds,snakes,small animals,bears and every animal i know and i don't know.I enjoyed a lot and taken some photos and when i came near to see the white peacock.It opened its feather and i think its really amazing as the care taker told its very rare to open its feather and i think its luck to see that type of scene.

White Tiger - it was taken in Ragunan zoological.
it was yesterday. i, my wife and my little son went to Ragunan Zoological in Jakarta. it's not far from where we are living. it can be reach only by walk on foot. well we have visited this zoo quite many times. and love being there since it has fresh air from the city forest they have plus we can have some extra "walk" which is good for our health.

Hi, ladym33! Oh goodness! I can't really remember the last time that I went to the zoo! It was such a long time ago! It had to have been when I was young, like at 6 or 9 years old... I haven't been in over 20 years or so. If I went to the zoo, it would be Riversbanks Zoo in Columbia, South Carolina. I think it is a great zoo to go to, especially when you want to take young children there.

I live in England and there are really not many zoos left to be honest. I hate the ideas of zoos anyway though, i believe animals should be left in their own environments. There are a few safari parks near by which are much better, lots of space for the animals. I always think of zoos as tiny dirty places for some unknown reason, maybe past experiences.

The last time that I went to the zoo was either in 2007 or 2008, I can't remember which. But I'm thinking it was 2008. My family took my nieces to the zoo in Memphis, Tennessee. We stayed there for several hours and I think we all had fun. It's definitely safe to say that we were all worn out by the time we left that afternoon. I can't compare it to other zoos though since I think we had gone to the same zoo for my oldest niece when she was younger and I can't remember if I was taken to a different one as a young kid.

I went to Rolling Hills Zoo in Salina, Kansas last June. It is very nice, but is rather on the expensive side. They also have a museum that depicts lots of diverse cultural vignettes. I like the Sedgewick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas, but have not been in ages.We usually get a membership when we do go. Carey Park Zoo in Hutchinson, Kansas is a free zoo that is really quite nice with native animals of Kansas.

Many years have past, and I think I had been to the zoo about 10-12 years ago. I am from India, state Orissa. The nearest zoo for us is the Nandankanan(meaning forest of fun in my mother tongue) zoo. It has some good variety of animals and it is the only zoo I have visited in my life. I know such an info would of no help to you, but I liked to respond, that's why responded. Hope you soon get appropriate answers to your questions. Happy myLotting.

The last time I went to the Zoo I must say was. . . . about a week ago. It was the Kruger Zoo in SA an the awsum thing was that the animals was not in CAGES but roaming all around us. The downside though was we could only get out at watchpoints but there was plenty of them. But all and all it was great and it was so clean and the food was AWSUM!
