Our little family went to the zoo in February. It was super snowy and very quiet. There weren't many people there so it sort of felt like we had rented out the zoo for ourselves. I had never been to the Bronx Zoo and it is incredible. It's like a giant park with twisty, turny pathways and little mini-bamboo forests.
Buddy fell asleep right before we got to the bears, which was good because then she couldn't attract their attention, tasty morsel that she is, but bad because it would have been nice for her to see her kin. Little bear.
