We have a really nice local zoo.
We have such a large and varied selection of animals and I can tell that the zoo is committed to both teaching, and conservation, and the rehabilitation of many of the animals that come through their gates.
The zoo is so nice and it’s such an awesome experience exploring it. I tend to be the kind of person that lingers at a habitat, just admiring all the awesome creatures. I have learned one thing about visiting the zoo though. The temperature and weather matters a lot. In the summertime you’re going to want to be hopping from climate controlled space to climate controlled space. It can get pretty hot and humid in this climate, and I’m glad that there are few buildings in which air conditioning is plentiful. There are a few restaurants, and as far as exhibits go, the reptile house has some great A/C too! You also have to keep in mind that many of the animals have their own climate-controlled spaces that they can retreat to during the hotter parts of the day. You may not see as many animals when it’s really hot outside. You can have the same problem in the winter time, except it’s because of the cold. Animals love central heating just as much as we do! Thus, it is often either the spring or the fall time that is the best time to visit the zoo. This is when neither you nor the animals will need near as much climate control the cool down or warm up.
