Where the wild things are

Snow leopard

One of the advantages to living in the Los Angeles suburbs is the nearness to big city attractions. Today I went to the Los Angeles Zoo, which is located on the north side of Los Angeles, about 20 miles from Downey.

My favorite exhibits are the cats. The two snow leopards, named Tom and Jerry, are usually well hidden in the tall grasses and trees. Today, only one was hidden, and the other one reluctantly opened his eyes and raised his head to check us out.

For more pictures of my morning at the zoo, see The benefits of membership at the LA Zoo.

    I always feel sorry for the animals in the Zoo, see them as prisoners(
