Everyone who knows me knows I LOVE going to the zoo. If I could go on safari at a moments notice I would jump at the chance. However, as I live in the NYC area I have to settle for the Bronx Zoo. Luckily, it is easy to get to as the #2 and #5 subway trains stop a few blocks from the Asia Gate.
I try to go several times a year as it’s good exercise for the day and you never know what to expect from the animals when you see them. I highly recommend going when the babies are there as they are very very playful. Feeding time is another good one. I have taken tons of pictures over the past few years so here are a few highlights from the last three times I went – 5/26/11, 9/19/11, and 4/19/12 – as these were the times I brought my Canon Rebel XS with me. Enjoy!
If you are interested in donating to the zoo and to any of the causes they support please check out their donation page here.
If anyone wants to request an entry on a specific animal, the architecture of the zoo, or an area of the zoo please feel free to request in the comments and I will see what I can do for you down the road.
