      Re: Favourite zoo animals

      I love all animals, big or small, tame or wild, i'm not a fan of zoos though, i don't believe animals should be locked up in cages then viewed by the paying public, i believe they should be left in their own environment, i do agree with sancturies though for endangered animals but definitely not zoos.

        Totally agree with those sentiments Nugs. We have a zoo in OZ at Dubbo (central NSW) where animals are left to roam in a large open range unlike the inner city Taronga Zoo where they are all caged.

          Nowadays you can just buy a hamster or bunch of guinea pigs at almost any pet store. Getting a goat is more complicated I had cats and hamsters in my childhood but nowadays all I can afford are rats in my basement. By the way, any ideas how to get rid of them? I think that best solutions are covered in this article.

          I agree with this statement. As as kid I loved visiting a local zoo but with age I understood that even the best zoos harm animals and even the best zoo can't provide living conditions close to natural. Unless you're sheltering endangered species like tigers, then that's acceptable.

                Yes, although the main problem with being a giraffe is getting a stiff neck all the time.
                I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
                There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind

                  Do giraffes really eat ice cream?

                          I was going to put "cow" on here but one doesn't find them in zoos.
