New York Bucket List: The Bronx Zoo
A few weeks ago I checked off another item on my New York Bucket List, The Bronx Zoo. I'm sure it would have taken me ages to go on my own (I'm a little iffy on how I feel about zoos in general) but a friend had corporate passes for the day. So, on a warm June day we took a longer-than-usual subway ride up to the Bronx!
The zoo was easy to find, with these cute signs pointing us in the right direction.
It wasn't super hot that day, but kids were playing in hydrants nonetheless. I was a little giddy about it, it felt like something you'd see in a movie about New York :)
We were greeted by a baby camel and his mama. There were lots of baby animals that day. So, if you like baby animals (and who doesn't?) late spring/early summer is a good time to visit the zoo!
We saw a bored polar bear (he was pacing, so I'm assuming. I'm no bear psychologist).
We starred at these zebras (also mama and a baby, I think!) for a long time, they're so beautiful.
This lady lion (we called her Nala) came close for a bit.
And there were tons of male peacocks showing off their pretty plumage. All in all, a fun day at the zoo. Have you been? The Bronx Zoo is so big I think we maybe missed a few places, so I'd definitely go back another time.
