I went to the zoo in July. It's the Kansas City Zoo. My favorite thing to see this year was the Meerkats. They just reminded me of my ferrets in some ways. I love seeing all the animals though!

Thanks for your comment that Meerkats are cute. My dad had a ferret once a white one that was cute too.

I took my daughter to Whipsnade Zoo, Hertfordshire, UK on the last day of her half-term school holidays. we had a great day and at 5, i think she really enjoyed it. unfortunately the weather wasn't great. but it didn't really spoil the day. my favourite animal was the brown bear, they are so lovely and cuddly looking. my daughters favourite animals were the chimpanzees as they were having so much fun while we were there running around their play enclosure. for anyone nearby in the UK, i definitely recommend whipsnade.

Yeah I've been to 2 twilight nights at Melbourne zoo and have had many day visits too.. I went to Australia zoo in 2000 that was a total awesome experience but the zoo has changed allot since then. I could see them beginning to build the what is now known as the crocoseum. would love to go back there again.

Children are a good excuse to go to the Zoo that's what I did even when my son was only 4moths old..*smiles* When I went recently my son was 3 1/2 years old and he absolutely loved it. He was so excited seeing all the different animals.

OH my, its been a long time since I went to the Zoo. I love them though and wish we had one closer to us. My favorite animal is a dolphin, but Zoo's really don't have that. So my next favorite probably is monkeys!

The last time I went to a zoo was in June. Me,my son ,my husband, my mother in-law and my grandmother in-law all went for a family day. We went to Potters Park Zoo, it's in Lansing. It's a nice smaller size zoo for little kids. My favorite animal that we saw was the baby monkeys, they were so cute. My sons was the big snake, he is such a boy :)

The baby Monkey's are so cute. I remember as a Child wanting one and asking dad if he could get me one for a pet... hehe... I'm not a fan of snakes the freak me out because they can kill you,That scares me and I Don't want to get bitten. I have bad dreams about them which makes things worse.

The Elephant enclosure is nice a lot bigger than the old one the poor elephants were cooped up in. I saw them once a while back Painting That was pretty cool. I go probably every year. I love seeing all the animals. It's so much Fun.

We were at the zoo about a week ago. We tried to go over the weekend, but it was the grand opening of the polar bear exhibit and they were packed. We went back on a Monday and it was still pretty busy :). I like the penguins, there was one who was a real ham, diving in the water and eating it up when everyone clapped for him.

Tiger at the zoo. - Here is a Tiger that I saw at our zoo.
I last visited a zoo this past summer. It is a local zoo and it is pretty small but still got to see some beautiful animals. I would say that my favorite zoo is the DC zoo.
