Thanks to St. Mark's hospital, we got the Hogle Zoo all to ourselves... And 1000 other people. It was a pretty eventful zoo day. We were in the gorilla cage and people were saying nothing was in the cage and that they were probably outside. So we were heading out when out of the corner of my eye I see this flash if black behind the glass and hear a pounding noise. The gorilla came charging out of his hiding place and started banging in the glass to get our attention. I was so scared. I actually thought that it was some zoo worker dressed as a gorilla because I couldnt believe a gorilla would do that. It looked so big and scary. It was so freaky. Later in the night we went to see the tigers. We got to see two tigers swimming and then another two fighting and growling at eachother. Some thought the male wanted to mate and the girl wasn't having it. It was cool to see them active instead of just lying there like they usually do.
