    Spend some time at the Sea Lions exhibit. But be careful - you can easily lose track of time and spend hours there!

    Find the Jungle World building in the Asia section. Very low profile entrance but it's huge and amazing. End up deep down at the Jungle Waterfall room with underwater view of huge fish

    On Wednesdays it's a "Suggested Donation" day which includes everything but a camel ride. So take a personal day and spend it exploring the wild wonders of the Animal Kingdom.

    To see the most, either start at the upper right entrance near Zoo Center / Astor Court or hustle up there first. Meander down to south entrance.

    Let your child learn about animals by pretending to be one—like sitting inside a heron’s nest, trying to jump as far as a frog, popping out of a prairie-dog burrow and crawling through an otter log.

    One of the best zoos I've seen - well worth a visit. Visit on a cloudy day, and the animals will be super active. Try to see the polar bear in early afternoon.

    Take the express bus from Manhattan...much better than the subway. Also, go on a weekday in the Spring if you can. You'll avoid the crowds.

    There hasn't been a year in the entire history of the zoo when an animal didn't escape. Most of the time it's a small bird or snake, but in 1982 it was a rare and dangerous panther.

    Be sure to check out the giraffes. They're probably the closest you're allowed to get to a big animal without a fence, moat, or window in the way.
