At the Sedgewick County Zoo I have always enjoyed the Rainforest Building. It has lots of tropical plants, a descending bark path. The birds fly and run free. So do the fruit bats. There is a stream with live fish and small rays. I enjoy going in a tunnel that passes underwater in the stream. You can look out at the fish. Please tell me in detail about your favorite zoos.

I really like rainforest exhibits. There is a very small zoo not too far from me that has a very quaint little rainforest with free flying bats, birds,etc and a little pond with fish that the different birds catch and eat. I love just sitting there watching everything. I also really love watching gorillas. I find them quite fascinating and extremely entertaining. I like to watch them interact with each other. There is a baby now at one of the zoo's near me. It's especially fun to watch them as they clown around alot.

We have a pretty new gorilla exhibit that is called Gorillas in the Mist. What is the zoo that you go to. I may make a lot of money and take a road trip back east next summer. lol

I don't ever like spending the money it takes to get in high quality zoos, but I've been to a couple via class trips in High school and stuff like that and I've always gotten a huge kick out of the monkeys. I mean let's be honest, most of the animals just mull around and are pretty boring despite the fact that they're very interesting creatures to look at, but the monkeys go all out to entertain their audiences. I have a good monkey story, but it's relatively gross and probably shouldn't be shared on a public forum. LOL... Take care.

We usually get a year pass aboout every 18 months to two years. Then we visit zoos all over when we travel for reciprocal rates or for free. Actually I have been to about 5 free zoos here in Kansas that are unique and interesting.At one my grandson got stalked by a lonely pelican. Now the pelican has a mate.

I am afraid our zoo which is in Dublin is not as good as it was back in the old days. My parents used to take us there quite a lot, especially on Sundays, when the monkeys had there teaparty. It was great fun to see the monkeys all dressed up with their white bibs tucked under their chins and seated around a table with a nice white tablecloth and white plates. As the zoo keepers brought their food, they would eat it very politely, but after a while they would start throwing it at each other, and they would then start throwing the plates. We were also allowed to feed the elephants and go for rides on them, but I must say, that the teaparty was my favourite. To-day, there are not so many animals in the zoo, no teaparties, no elephant rides, and nobody is allowed to feed the animals. There is even talk of the zoo closing. What a pity, but all good things must come to an end.

Zoos are expensive to keep up with for a community, unless they have lots of industry support. That tea party sounds like a really good childhood memory.
