A visit to a zoo is always a treat even if I am inevitably left with mixed feelings. While I am grateful for efforts to preserve endangered species and for an opportunity to see and observe animals I might never otherwise be able to experience, I have to wonder… were those chimps fed up with humans staring at them, was the gorilla depressed or merely taking a nap, were the elephants sad? I suppose we tend to project our human emotions onto animals. Yet animals have emotional lives of their own. Whether our reading of them is accurate, remains a bit of a mystery. See and decide for yourself what you think goes on in those minds.
