hehe I sounded like it is A MUST to do but I'm just excited to have got to go to the zoo! If I remember right, it has been more than 10 years I haven't been to the Zoo. I went to the Zoo with my friend yesterday, I saw lots of animals, elephant, giraffe, leopard, bear, all the cool ones! It would be very nice if we could get closer and pet them:-p I took couple pictures of them, the giraffe one is really cool, he got very close to us and ate grass like showing off how long his tongue is!:-p And the elephant impressed me too because I always see them in the photos but I never seen them in real person! It is real HUGE and wrinkle! Do you like to go to the Zoo? Which animal impresses you the most? Can you see the picture? Isn't it cool? I know I sounded over excited because I love to see animals!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No my friend this year i have not been to zoo. But i am thinking of paying a visit to the zoo. Because of my heavy work load i am not able to go to Zoo. I like to go zoo because i think it is a way to connect with the nature. I am thinking to go to zoo in the winter season. Waiting for the winter season.

I went to zoo recently with my relatives. It is the same case with me that last time I went to zoo was 10 years back. It was fun watching those animals again after a long time. Some animals and birds still facinate me. The peacocks with their brilliant feathers and the cheeta with its elegance. It is fun to watch monkeys and the things they do. :-)

Hello mermaidivy. I have been to the local zoo already and I have to say that I love to see those animals there. There are many different kinds of animals like pandas, wolves, lions, tigers, horses, different species of dogs, birds and so on. I once saw a giraffe in another zoo in Shanghai, which was very tall.

I was running around like a lil kid all over the place =P it was sooo huuuuge =O soo many animals, absolutely adorable, and got in that speed boat with the driver that likes to scare people in the river too =P and the aquarium also. It was super fun ^w^ but my legs were killing me by the time we left O.o haven't walked THAT much for a while, lol

So sad to say that I have not been to zoo for a very long time. If i remember correctly, the last time i went to zoo is more than 10 years ago dy. In the zoo, there was only a few types of animals, and it was very smelly. That's why i don;t like to go zoo.

Yes, it does smell but it is what the wild animals smell like...

I have been to the zoo before I remember I was a highschool student. I see giraffe and how tall it is, the elephant, snakes, and birds. Its great to see animals like that because it is not ordinary that we see them on street, we only see pictures of them and when we see them face to face we will learn to love them. I love giraffe, it will look at you as like it is greeting you and I like his way of chewing.

I love the zoo! I try to go to a zoo at least once a year. My daughter and her classmates took a field trip to the zoo in May. And of course I went along! I love riding the train and feeding the fish. Our local zoo don't have too many different items. Recently they had gotten a white tiger and he is so beautiful. I didn't see an elephant, nor a gorilla, giraffe, leopard, bear or panda. But I still love going to our local zoo.

I like the go to a zoo every couple of months. I bought a membership to the National Zoo in DC this year, so I have to go at least once more to make it pay for itself. I usually go to the DC zoo but I also visit the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, the Salisbury Zoo, and Zoo America in Hershey, PA. I love zoos and I go whenever I can. My favorite animals to see are the red panda, the wolves, the otters, and the gorillas/chimps. I love the ape house because the gorillas do come right up to the glass every once in awhile. Last time I was at the zoo there was a new baby gorilla which was adorable. He was big enough to climb around on his mother's back. And I accidentally scared one gorilla who came around a corner, saw me standing there, and started beating his fists on the glass at me before he ran away. Also, the last time I was at the zoo, I heard a lion growling and roaring for the first time. It was a female lion, talking to a male somewhere else, and boy was she loud! You could hear her halfway across the zoo. I think I'll go back in the next couple of weeks, before it gets too hot.

I love the zoo! I try to go at least once during the summer. It's sometime everyone should at least experience once. My favorite animal is the penguin. I find them absolutely adorable! I love how when they jump out of the water they shake their tail feathers. Also when they are swimming under the water like little torpedoes. It really makes you want to reach in there and give them a hug! I also love the monkeys, although they really can smell! Especially the little fuzzy ones. I could pinch their cheeks all day long!!

No, I haven't been to a zoo this year. The last time I went was in 2007. My family and I took my two young nieces (along with my oldest niece's friend) to the Memphis Zoo in Memphis, Tenneessee. We all had a good time and by the time we finished that day, we were all worn out.

Hey there! I can see you had a great time! Good for you! Going to the Zoo is always good fun! I thought it was a cute coincidence when i found this discussion because yesterday I was thinking that it's been a decade since I last went to the Zoo, and that it was time to go visit it again. I really like to see all the animals and the different habbitats and so on. Unfortunatly, it's very expensive to get in, it's like 30 bucks, and I really can't afford it right now. I'll have to wait for payout I guess...

I went to a small one and it was still 12 bucks, it wasn't too bad though, we spend couple hours in there and took some nice pictures of the animals! I hope you will have a good trip when you go visit next time! Thanks for sharing! :-)

I have been to the zoo this year. A friend of mine asked me to go with her and her son and I had not been to a zoo in I couldn't tell you how long. It was very interesting. I actually agreed to go because I knew she didn't want to go alone and thought it was going to be a boring trip but it was very enjoyable!

I haven't been to the zoo in over a year. The last time I went was bad though. It was the worst zoo I have ever visited. I want to take my son because he is at the stage where he loves animals. He mostly loves lions. I don't know which animal facinates me most though. I hope to take him no later then this fall but it may have to wait until next year. We will wait and see.
