i went to a zoo today, it was not my first choice of activity to do but I went. I realized while there that I no longer enjoy zoos. As a kid, I would go to the zoo almost at least once a year, either with school or with my family. I’ve been to some good zoos and some not so good zoos.
Today walking around the zoo in Seattle, it hit me I no longer enjoy them. Why? I don’t know. I tried to figure it out and the best I can come up with is that I have seen most of the animals and a majority of the time they aren’t doing anything. A lot of zoos have spent tons of money to improve the experience for the visitors and to improve the habitat for the animals, but the animals don’t seem to be anymore active. Everyone gathers around the exhibit trying to find the animal and when it is spotted, the creature is just laying there.
Maybe I’m getting old and grumpy.
