    (Thank you, mstickmanp, for suggesting that I join ZooChat. - I'm sorry I incorrectly identified your username earlier!)

    I am looking forward to reading what everyone has to say about zoos, and participating in some of the discussions, too. I am especially interested in the debate over whether or not elephants should be exhibited in zoos. (I think they should be in all zoos, especially all the well-known, larger ones.)

    I love all zoos. But as a child, the National Zoo in Washington, DC was my favorite zoo for many years.

    And, since 1969, the Philadelphia Zoo has been my all time, number one favorite.

    Have a good day, everyone!

    Thanks, and why the "hmmmm"?

    Thank you for the welcome.

    Why the "hmmmm"?

    If you look at some of YouTube videos (http://www.YouTube.com/ZooVisitorMM), you can see what I love about this very special zoo.

    (It's the number and variety animals, the loving care the animals receive from a dedicated, knowledgeable staff, and the overall beauty and tranquility of the Zoo.)
