Zoo, Los Angeles

The L.A. Zoo opened in 1966 and nearly 1.5 million visitors pass through the grounds each year to view over 1200 animals from all over the world. It's nestled in the northeast corner of Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
I had trouble choosing one image today, so 4 separate shots were combined into this small collage. Clockwise from upper left are the main entrance; a jaguar; an American alligator; and a hippo being fed papaya by a lucky family chosen by zookeepers to help out with the afternoon snack.
