Zoos

Post by Inuyasha » Thu Dec 23, 2004 6:33 pm

What is the best zoo in america? I personally think that the Philadelphia Zoo is the best. Washington D.C.'s zoo is pretty cool too. San Deigo is an awful zoo.

A holistic forum for zoologists? Wonder why this topic of zoos got brought up. Well ok, San Diego contains the rarest animals around, and has this double-decked bus ride that gives you a bird's eye view of the zoo. I don't see why you would despise it.

Wow Inu, that's quite a list there. I'm really skeptical about whether you've visited them all, haha. Anyway, I'll generate a list here myself as well...your list, and what I think of it:

1. Lowry Park Zoo: Interesting, "Voted #1 Family Friendly Zoo in America"...seems like a good zoo for entertainment purposes. Haven't been there.
2. San Deigo Zoo: You just contradicted yourself there. You argued against me and yet you ranked it number 2 on your own list? Funny.
3. Oklahoma City Zoological Park and Botanical Garden: I've seen this one. It's a pretty good zoo- a great number of animals and plants on display.
4. Brookfield Zoo: It's similar to #3, except that it doesn't have as big a botanical garden.
5. Phoenix Zoo: Again, no botanical garden. Seems like an educator's choice.
6. Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden: Ah, been to this one. My parents brought me there when I was younger. I liked it personally, and I'll rank it right next to the San Diego Zoo.
7. Bronx Zoo: Went there last summer. Also a good one. There's this Tiger Mountain Exhibit thing...it's really interesting.
8. Toledo Zoo: From what I heard, the experience differs from summer to winter. Hearing the comments regarding this zoo from a friend, I wouldn't say that it's the best zoo around.
9. Fort Wayne Children's Zoo: Children's Zoo? Interesting...you must've liked it a lot as a child...unless, of course, I've overestimated your age.
10. Columbus Zoo and Aquarium:You have both the land and marine mammals in this one. Once again, I haven't been to this one, but from what I heard, it sounds pretty cool. Florida manatees, mexican wolves, white lions...

Merry Christmas to all, by the way.

According to information given to me by sites and some friends, I'd say that the zoos in Germany have quite extensive collections, while the San Diego and Bronx zoos side with the best of the Germany zoos. I am quite fond of animals, so I'd say that the Berlin Zoo with 74 acres of over 13 000 species of animals in "open captivity" would be the best zoo in the world. There's the Elephant Gate, an oriental-style gate with elephant sculptures built in 1899 and refurnished in the mid-1980s. If you prefer looking sea animals, there's the Berlin Aquarium (the largest and most comprehensive collection of aquatic animals in the world) right beside the zoo. There are more than 250 tanks displaying an amazing variety of fish. Really wish that I could go there someday.

Inu, you kept on insisting that the Philadelphia Zoo is a great zoo with a good collection. But...you gave no information regarding it. Why do you think that it's a great zoo to go to, and which zoo do you think is the best in the world?

What about a topic about the conditions which animals live in and what influence do these conditions have on them?
Or would you prefer a more scientific topic?

It's a one day trip. I don't think i can do all that in one day at the zoo. Observations like that need years for just one species. Any other ideas
