London Zoo

I've always liked London Zoo. We went there today and I was actually pretty disappointed: many of the iconic animals (elephants, rhinos, orang utans, chimpanzees, leopards, bears etc) are no longer there, probably for very good reasons to do with their welfare. Also, there are just less species altogether: I remember there being a lot of different antelopes, bison, yaks and so on, but these aren't there any more either, perhaps because no one was particularly interested in them. Anyway, the new bits (well, new to me): the walk-through butterfly tent, the rainforest exhibit, Gorilla Kingdom and the komodo dragon house were very good, and the old-school reptile house is still as cool as ever.
