She’s been saying she wanted to go for the longest and last Saturday was the perfect day for some outdoor adventure.
After about 1.5 hours on the train, we had to transfer from the 4 at Utica avenue to the 2 at Nevins and go all the way to Pelham Pkway Station, we walked for maybe 5 minutes from the train station to the zoo enterance.
Although we got there 3 hours before closing, they open at 10 and close around 530, we still got to see a great deal. Id suggest that you go much earlier though, so you can have the complete zoo experience.
My favorite attraction of all was the Wild Asia Monorail because we got to sit, relax and listen to a guided tour of the different animals found in Asia.
Jungle World was also pretty interesting and there we saw a turtle fart and poop and a fish eat the poop soon after. It was totally disgusting but funny at the same time. I mean we could actually see the fart bubbles in the water. So gross lol.
I was really looking forward to taking the shuttle ride (another one of the paid attractions) around the zoo and I would recommend it to anyone visiting, because even though we saw a lot, after looking at the map I realized that we still had so much more to experience. Next time we visit I will make sure it’s much earlier in the day to really get the Total Experience.
We did get to see some pretty cool animals though. Below is just a few of the many that we saw and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
