Which Zoo

Postby Catfish » Fri Mar 23, 2012 6:48 pm

Can anyone tell me which Zoo is better between the "Milwaukee Zoo" or the "Minnesota Zoo" ?

Sorry I can't compare the two, I haven't been to the Milwaukee Zoo since Sampson was alive! I have been to the Minnesota Zoo though. That is very nice. They have done some recent remodeling and it's really a good time, my kids love it. There is another zoo in Mpls., The Como Zoo, that is a smaller zoo and is really nice too. The Como Zoo is about the size of the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, maybe a little bigger but comparible in size.

Gee, I thought the zoo in Madison was centered around the capital ! :lol:
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.

I actually prefer the Como Zoo in Saint Paul, MN. It's free :D The MN Zoo is nice but expensive. It has a different concept than most zoos. You ride an elevated train to see most of the animals. The Como Zoo is just your old fashioned zoo that you remember from childhood. I've been to the Milwaukee Zoo but it was 40 years ago, no idea what it's like now.
