The zoo was enormous and amazing but because we went during winter, many animals weren't out. The zoo can easily be done in one day :)

Do you like lions and tigers and bears? Well my favorite was the dinosaurs, yes the Bronx zoo has dinosaurs, giraffes, wild dogs, and much much more. Your family will enjoy an entire day in this clean, safe zoo with easy parking

Everytime I go, I have a great time. The dinosaur exhibit is amazing!!!! There is so much to do and see that neither the adults or children will be bored. I try to go a few time during the summer.
