Yes, yes, I know. I made another thread. This time I'd like to see what your favorite zoo and aquarium visiting memories are. Here's mine, Interacting with a Beluga Whale, throught the exhibit glass, at Mystic Aquarium. Seeing a Red Panda on a branch within reaching distance with no barriers in between on the Asian Monorail at the Bronx Zoo. Visiting the Beardsley Zoo for the first time and seeing lots of species I hadn't in the past and learning, for the first time, about conservation and endangered species. Visiting the Smithsonian National Zoo for the first time since I was about 2 years old. Seeing a Giant Panda, at the Smithsonian National Zoo, for the first time since I was about 2 years old. Playing with a Western Lowland Gorilla through the exhibit glass at the Bronx Zoo (I have a picture of this gorilla and will post soon). The mind-boggling sensation of seeing an Aldabra Giant Tortoise (my first giant tortoise) for the first time at the Smithsonian National Zoo.
