Philadelphia Zoo Sights and Sounds - 2011

At the Philadelphia Zoo, it's hard not to be in the right place at the right time. No matter where you are, whether it's in the Small Mammal House, in the Reptile and Amphibian House, in the Rare Animal Conservation Center, in the Primate Reserve, in Carnivore Kingdom, or walking through the African Plains or Bear Country areas, there is ALWAYS something fascinating, educational, thought-provoking, inspirational, or funny happening.

In 1999, I bought a digital camera and discovered that, to spread the word about my favorite zoo, a picture was indeed worth a thousand words. So I created this website, and have added new editions to it each year (for ten years!).

Then, in August, 2008, I began videorecording some of the fascinating, educational, thought-provoking, inspirational, and funny happenings at the Zoo and discovered that a video is worth an infinite number of words.

My YouTube "I love the Philadelphia Zoo" channel is ZooVisitorMM. There, you can see all the videos I have published since August 2008. Throughout the year, I will be featuring some of my favorite videos recorded in 2011 here.
