The construction at the zoo prevented us from seeing some of the animals (giraffes, zebras)...this was identified on the zoo's website. The pandas were the highlight for us. To me, the layout of the zoo is not very conducive to viewing some of the animals.More

We're delighted you had a great time at Zoo Atlanta! Our clouded leopard Suhana can be shy, so you got a little lucky that she was giving you some great photo opportunities!
