Best Zoos in England
Zoos are an interesting attraction, aren't they? We walk around and look at caged biological creatures; we laugh at them, their environment; we smile and are astounding on how they act (because is some ways they are like us). But, it's funny, isn't it? When we leave we feel, maybe only a slightly, better than when we entered; because we have freedom, we have intelligence, we have the ability to mold are mailable world.
Anyways - enough rambling. You're here because, even if you didn't know it, want to experience the feeling I just stated - and you want to experience it in England. Luckily for you many of the best zoos in Europe, and some of the best zoos in the world, are zoos which are found in England.
