Going to the Toronto Zoo on Saturday was a gamble. Weather forecasts varied from a definite rainstorm a week prior to low chances of rain on Saturday morning. In the end, we found that enjoying the zoo was best done without a huge crowd, which the weather certainly played a role in controlling.
The zoo is divided into 7 geographically divided sections: Indo-Malaya, African Savanna, Canadian Domain, Americas, Tundra Trek (which is relatively new), Eurasia, and a section tailored for kids.
Map of Toronto Zoo. The 7 divisions are color coded: yellow for African Savanna, green for Canadian Domain, dark blue for Americas, light blue for Tundra, orange for Eurasia, brown for the Discovery Zone, and olive for Indo-Malaya.
Peacocks roamed free all over the zoo.
My favourite was the Australasia Pavillion - specifically the Great Barrier Reef. It brings no doubt how mesmerizing scuba diving is.
