Oakland's Zoo is much better than the zoo in San Francisco. First of all, the animals are not inclosed in separate "caves," many are free to roam large open areas. Photographing is easy and more true to life. If you arrive first thing in the morning, you can hear the canopy-dwelling primates calling each other awake. There is a little "train," for kids of all ages, there is a sky tram that takes you above the wide-open habitat, and there is even a small playland with merry-go-round and a tiny rollercoaster for the little ones. A truly great zoo.
