I was considering going to the zoo a few days ago, until I saw that it was going to rain. This made me wonder what you all thought about going to the zoo in different weather conditions (rain, snow, sun, etc). The average zoo-goer would probably only go on a nice, sunny day. But there are merits to going in the rain, since you will avoid the crowds, and since the animals may behave differently in different kinds of weather. What do you all think is the best weather to go to the zoo in? What do you see as the positive and negative aspects of visiting the zoo in different weather conditions? PS. This may also be a good place to discuss going to the zoo at different times of day. I know some zoos are occasionally open at night, which may be an interesting and unique time to visit.
