Jacksonville, FL – I’m not going to pass judgment on the Jacksonville Zoo based on my visit this Tuesday. The weather was heavily overcast when I left the Museum of Science and History, but after I was in the zoo for awhile, it began to rain. Since it was misting/raining, some of the animals were hiding and trying to stay warm and dry. The ape exhibit is also closed for renovation. so that reduced some of what there was to see. They do have a variety of wildlife from Africa, Asia/Australia, and South America, as well as animals native to Florida. There are several restaurants inside the zoo and the one I ate lunch at had surprisingly decent prices (to be honest, I was expecting high food/drink prices). One of these days, I’ll get back down there on a brighter, warmer day where more of the animals will be out and conditions more conducive to photography.
