Favorite zoo animal

What's your favorite animal to see at the zoo?
Mine are the giraffes! They are just so beautiful, such amazing creatures. I recently got to feed and pet them- something I've always wanted to do! I love the elephants too. Honestly, I love pretty much all animals

I prefer animals in their natural habitat and not locked up in cages.

Well excuse me! I work at an animal conservation center, it's not like I'm asking who likes to see animals tortured, or thumbs up for animal testing! Damn this place really is on my last nerve anymore. I RARELY post a topic and this is the first response I do get. NICE.

I like all animals, too! Matter of fact, I like animals better than most people, I always have; they never do anything just to be mean or hateful, they always have a reason, as long as you take the time to understand their natural behaviors - it all makes sense! So, I don't think I can pick a favorite, I love so many. I envy you the chance to interact with them & touch them, lucky you!

It's a nice experience, I love being able to see them. I don't get to get up close and personal with all of them though, just the lucky few of the animal management team to monitor them, give them their check-ups and provide veterinary care if needed and to heard rhinos and giraffes to winter housing in the cold months.

Hmm.. I'm more into marine animals, but if I had to choose a zoo animal it would probably be the giraffe or the monkeys.

Yeah, another to join my club! Obviously you are a person possessed of a keen discernment & have picked the correct side! And the fact you are a cat person, well...cats for me, too! But, that's because "house" cats are my LIFE! See my avatar, that's one of the five I have found & taken in -- WAY better company than most people, ha ha!

While i agree with you on that stance, which is why i do not use products tested on animals and boycot/protest circuses, many zoos are rehabilitation/conserv ation centers for animals that cannot thrive in the wild in a effort to conserve the species. Some even have programs which rehabilitate animals then let them back into their natural habitats with trackers so they can monitor the species.

Anyways Z I too love giraffes! In fact i saw two mate yesterday while at Disney's Animal Kingdom! While i've made some jokes about it (because how could i not?) it was a pretty cool experience since thats something not many laypeople will experience.
I was very excited to see the lemurs and the fruit bats as well, as their some of my favorite animals.

As far as domestic animals go, i'd have to say i'm a cat person, but i love all animals!

I honestly had no intention of offending you. I am sorry if I did. Although there are some zoos that only accept rescued animals and are concerned with animal welfare; majority of zoos all over the world are open for business and have very little concern over impact of captivity on animals. Most people don't realize that. I had no intention of accusing you of animal cruelty.

I'm not sure what the species was called but there were these teeny tiny deer at the Denver zoo that I just loved. They were about the size of a small/medium dog and I'm pretty sure they were full grown and not babies.

I tend to like the deer/antelope type animals.

All of them! I tend to spend most time at the monkey exhibits though since they are the most active and entertaining.
