maned wolf at 7:13am

I was here on June 1, which is the first day of their summer hours. They move the opening time from 9am to 7am. But members get in one hour early, so I bought a membership online, allowing me a 6am entry! Got there around 6:20am - well worth it. In one hour of shooting, from 6:30 to 7:30 in the morning, I got some of my best shots ever at this zoo of fennec fox, lion, tiger, cheetah, spec bear, maned wolf. Is 6am a record for earliest opening time of any zoo?

      That's very early. Of course, that's due to the extreme heat in Phoenix. You don't want to visit this zoo in the middle of the day during the summer. Great shot!

      Man, I would love to go to a zoo at 7am in the morning, seeing the animals most active.

      Well, come on out to Arizona next summer. Both Phoenix Zoo and Arizona Sonora Desert Museum open at 7am in summer. Reid Park Zoo opens on weekends at 7:30am to members only, but I could probably get you in.
