It’s always been surprising to people that I’ve lived in this area for so many years and never visited the Central Park Zoo. The truth behind it is that I’ve never had much of an urge to go in since it is so small. I had walked through the cross over several times and seen that there was always a crowd inside both sections of the zoo: the main section and the Tisch Children’s Zoo. On this trip, I opted to just go to the main section as I had no urge to go to a petting zoo with my camera as I have no children with me.
Originally, the main attraction of the zoo was the polar bear. This has, sadly, changed last year. Now the main attraction is the snow leopard, who is the craftiest hider I have seen in a zoo ever. I had to go to his pen several times before he came out of hiding in the tall grass and bushes.
