When I first moved to Atlanta I visited the zoo and HATED it. Thankfully that all changed.
What used to be a terrible place full of crowded cages and unnatural habitats has been completely undone.
It is a wonderful zoo, doing great things these days. You can visit, like I did for free, once a year by visiting your local library and picking up a pass good for 2 adults and 2 children.
If you time it right you can feed the Giraffe.
The best part of the zoo is the pandas. My son has been obsessed with them all his life. The tattoo I get the most compliments about is my negative space panda face on my calf. Needless to say...we are huge fans of these guys.
I could watch those panda babies all day long.
I love the birds of prey! If there is one at a bird shop, or a festival, or a farmers market you can bet you can find me there.
Who doesn't love a goat? Seriously. They are the funniest things on the planet. Some people watch cat videos all day, not me. It is all goats, all the time. Screaming goats slay me!
One day before my son is too old, I hope to spend the night at the Zoo.
