    I always enjoy going to the Bronx Zoo. It’s so relaxing to walk around & see 4,000 animals up close. It’s always a new & different experience. The exhibits are awesome! Can’t believe I took this pic..

    1) go on the monorail! Lots of animals and you get a rest and ride. 2) use the shuttle to get around and to opposite ends of the park quickly 3) Bring lunch so you save $$ and so can splurge on treats

    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.
