Have you noticed the newest, and smallest, additions in the Himalayan Highlands? Two snow leopard cubs were born on May 6th to first time parents, and are now on exhibit enjoying their time with mom.

I have a premium membership with the Bronx zoo and I have been renewing every year for the last 5 year. Me, my family and

my cousin (who is confined on a wheelchair and is visiting New York from Italy) went to the Bronx zoo. We feel offended,

and bullied by the rudeness of a young woman who, Saturday 15 of October 2015 was working at the exhibit Madagascar and

decided on her own to close the Madagascar exhibit, earlier than the scheduled closing time and not let us in.
We were on the Wild Asia monorail. At the end of the tour, the train was stuck outside of the station for more than 15

minutes. It was close to 5 pm. After we were finally able to get off the monorail, me and my family had to walk very fast,

pushing the wheelchair, trying to make it to the Madagascar exhibit, before 5 pm, which is the time of the last entrance

before they close the doors. We made it there at 4:58 pm but, there, there was this woman was closing the doors.
Kindly, I made her notice that it was 4:58 pm and not 5:00 pm yet, so she should have let us in.
All our smartphone indicated that it was 4:58. The smartphones set the time automatically, so there was not any possibility

that it was not 4:58. She did not even try to address the issue with us.
I tried to explain her what happened, she saw the wheelchair, I told that we are loyal Bronx zoo members and I showed her

what time it was, but the only thing that she was able to keep saying was: "We are closed. You cannot enter. I am not going

to let you in". She repeated that a couple of times, then she, apparently did not want to deal with us, so decided to shut

the door closed a few inches from my face, while I was still, politely, talking to her.
This behavior is not acceptable, especially from someone who was hired to work with the public who visit and support her

and the zoo, paying the tickets or, like us, buying an annual premium membership!
This is how the Bronx zoo employees, with their un-respectful, behavior, represent the Wildlife Conservation Society and

this is how they treat its members.
My cousin is going to go back to Italy. She was denied the possibility to visit the Madagascar exhibit even if we did not

do anything wrong and we were standing by the door, in time to enter the building.
She will be back in Italy with a very bad opinion if the Bronx zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society and its employees.
This is not acceptable and I will do my best to make sure that the management will track down who was working in the

Madagascar exhibit on Saturday October 15th 2016 at 5 pm and make her aware of what she did. I also expect an apology and

something from the Wildlife Conservation Society to make up for this unacceptable incident caused by one of their staff.

Great zoo for kids and adults. There is a Petting zoo for the kids to learn about the animals. I suggest wearing comfortable shoes because there is lots of walking to do. The animals look good so that mean the zookeeper has been taking care of them well. Overall good to see animals you haven't seen in person. Maybe sure to bring your own food and water to save money.

Not bad, but who really would expect a zoo to be very good in New York?

The first zoo I've ever been where it didn't smell. All staff was friendly. Loved their "Congo" and their gift shop. The camel rides were nice and the lady responsible for them (I think her name was Ruth) was very helpful and friendly. We chatted about camels for nearly an hour. The location is good too; 10 minutes from the subway. I came all the way from New York and it was worth it.

I'm given Bronx Zoo two stars for the only two positive experiences I had; the scenery was very beautiful, and you never get lost since there are signs and maps at every crossroad. But here is the but; it is very expensive when you are only aloud to see half the zoo. They exclude a whole continent (which is Asia) from the general admission ticket which is $33! To see the rest of the exhibitions you have to pay $14 extra. I've never had to pay that much for only half a zoo or any kind of theme park before, so that made me kind of angry and ruined the experience for me.
