I meant to post these photos a while ago. In summer, I took a trip to the Bronx Zoo. One of my favorite places in the zoo is the Butterfly Garden. I love visiting the zoo and don’t go there enough. When you enter the garden, you are given a sheet showing all of the butterflies–it’s fun to figure out if you have seen them all.
I stopped by the Central Park Zoo with my friend Sue the other day. We managed to catch the penguin-feeding. Penguins are a lot of fun.
I visited the Beijing Zoo before flying to Shanghai. I support the Wildlife Conservation Society (née the New York Zoological Society) back home, and I’m always curious to see zoos in other locations.
The main attraction of the Beijing Zoo is the pandas. It costs an extra 5 yuan (approximately 80 cents) to see the pandas. They are beautiful animals, although they are very sleepy.
I was also able to see much of the bird exhibits before I had to leave for my flight. The centerpiece of the zoo was a lake with a variety of different water birds.
I did not eat this duck.
There were also several indoor bird exhibits.
Calling Crokett and Tubbs!
A laughing thrush.
I went to the Bronx Zoo a while ago with Lisa and her kids. One of the best exhibits we visited was the butterfly garden. It generally costs extra to enter, but since I give the WCS a bunch of money it was free.
