Which Animal Is Your Favorite?

Every time I go to the zoo, I have to pay the polar bears a visit at their exhibit. I like the other animals, but bears have a special place in my heart. Surely you have an affinity for a certain animal. So tell us, who gets your vote for favorite furry friend?

I like Tigers the most. Any baby animals are adorable even if their adult counterparts aren't that cute.

Monkey's but I love the elephants just as much, and watching my son's face in the amazing Indianapolis Zoo Dolphin Pavilion I could stay there for hours.

it has been proven that elephants in particular suffer in zoos - most of the better ones have retired their elephant exhibits.

Orangutans are my favorite. Here at the Phoenix Zoo they are so awesome. They have a little baby and he is just the most precious thing at the zoo, I also think its funny that the males name is Michael, like my husband.

I was always fond of the seagulls who stole the hot dogs right out of the bun in children's hands over in the open eating area at San Francisco Zoo! As a child, I liked to feed the sheep and goats in Children's Playground. But, I recently brought my niece and needed to pick her up and run out of the goat/sheep area because they were nipping and chasing us for the dirty green food pellets. We had to run to safety!

That giraffe is still there in Santa Barbara? cool! She has been there since the late 80's I think. What a sweetheart. I love going to the zoo to see everything. However my absolutely favorite critters are the elephants. I also go nuts for seeing little mammal buttocks... like baby elephant bottom, baby rhino bottom, koala bear bottom. I have way to many pictures of animal bottoms from various zoo visits.

novaraen!! I was totally thinking of the same giraffe when I took this poll. I grew up in that area and LOVED going to see her. Her neck is totally crooked but she's fine, I know for sure she's had one baby, but she might have had 2. Her name is Gemina! I love her! The doctors say her neck doesn't bother her eating or breathing or obviously mating so they would rather not do invasive surgery. Also at the same zoo they used to have Max the gorilla, he died a couple years ago (old age) but he was SO awesome. He would walk up to the window and point at kids and sit real close. I miss that zoo SO much!

I love the river otters. They are always so playful. It's fun to go to the zoo and actually see the animals doing something...other than sleeping!
