Concerns have been raised about the treatment of animals in some zoos.

However, special care and consideration is commonly extended to young animals. For example, when baby monkeys, kangaroos and giant anteaters were born at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay earlier this year, keepers housed the young animals with their mothers in a private area of the zoo, away from the eyes of visitors.

Unfortunately, not all animals receive the same love as zoo babies. According to the Humane Society, 3 million to 4 million dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the U.S. alone, and many shelters operate at capacity or struggle with overpopulation.

If you have pets, make sure to spay or neuter them. If you are thinking about getting a pet, consider the long-term responsibility of pet ownership, and explore adoption options with your local shelter, or by visiting and the ASPCA website.

Thanks for sharing this Barb! I am a fan of the zoo in my state, Roger Williams Zoo, because they have a fantastic conservation program and great educational programs. The more people are exposed to these animals, and learn about them, the more they are likely to stop and think about what needs to be done to preseve all these wonderful creatures!

These are beautiful pictures but don't let cute images blind you and make you less vigilant about zoos!
