I love the zoo. I can stand in front of the monkeys for hours just watching them goof around, hang from the cage and try to get food. The San Diego Zoo is probably one of my favorites I have been to so far. But both times my friends and I were there, we've gotten lost and went from the the monkeys to the aviary and back to the monkeys, then back to the aviary. 
The first time we went, we saw a mother Jaguar protecting her cubs, growling at the kids that were knocking on the window. 
The is by far my favorite photo of the bunch - a Chinese Snow Leopard, staring straight into my camera. 
monkeys are so smart!
