We spent the day with friends exploring the Bronx zoo. It is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States. The zoo is well kept and we spend quite some time there.

Other than the normal animals that one would find in zoo's, we got to see some of their main attractions like the Butterfly Park, Tiger Mountain - these Siberian tigers are taught games to keep them fit and stimulated, Madagascar - you can view all the different types of wildlife from the world's fourth largest island. Like leaping lemurs, hissing cockroaches, towering baobobs and octopus trees.

We were unable to see the Congo Gorilla Forest as the queue was quite long.
