We spent a fun day at the Como Park Zoo today. It was a great outing for reasons more than one. The biggest plus point was there was a lot to see in a very compact space and manner. In other words, we had to walk less and still were able to see quite a lot of all the major animals (ones easily identifiable without having to look at the name plates outside their cages :) .There were monkeys of various shapes and sizes; tortoises, flamingos and seals; lions, tigers and leopards; giraffes; zebras and even a couple of playful polar bears.
An added attraction was the Como Town with the kiddie rides; where fortunately Vansh enjoyed as opposed tohis strange behaviour at the Mall of America rides a couple of weeks back. He had a lot of fun in especially the car rides.
