5/31/05 Just visited the Maryland Zoo yesterday. What a waste of money! We paid $15 a person, walked through lovely greenery, on good paths, but saw very few animals. I could have done that at a good park. There were some "pairs" of animals, e.g., the rhinos and zebras, who subsequently disappeared behind boulders, a few giraffes, a couple of leopards, and a cheetah. But it's often hard to find the animals in their habitat, if they're there at all, and the zoo is missing many types of animals, such as hippos. There were 4 chimps, 2 of some other type of monkey, and that was it. The animal population at this zoo is sparse, at best. Actually, the best part was the farmyard area, where the little ones can pet little goats. And the parking lot leaves much to be desired. Very difficult with a stroller.
