It’s not everyday in the city that you get a chance to walk along a winding road past African Plains and Himalayan Highlands where birds call one another from distant trees and lions sunbathe under the open sky. As part of the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Bronx Zoo, which covers 265 acres of land in the Bronx borough of New York City, is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States. Aside from the expected, lions, tigers and bears, there’s a roster of some pretty exotic species like the Pygmy Marmoset, world’s smallest monkey that measures a mere five inches, African Wild Dogs, and the Rhinoceros, that, sure, is nothing new, but pretty amazing to see in person. It’s a day-long adventure, to cover it all, but a peaceful getaway from the concrete streets. Wear your walking shoes and be prepared to ‘ooh’ and ‘awe’ at some of the world’s most beautiful creatures, that are, oddly enough, living right here with us, in New York City!
