We brought little Avani with us, who was a little scared about the peacocks roaming around. She felt a little more comfortable when we went into the warm heated rainforest exhibit. . . . but I think she was still a little alarmed by seeing all the creatures! Even though the Beardsley Zoo is relatively small compared to the Bronx Zoo just an hour-and-change away, there are a lot of neat exhibits as can be seen below. Our family had a great time walking around and taking photos! I’m still a little on the fence about purchasing a membership (which is a little steep at >120 despite the reciprocity agreements with other nationwide zoos), but perhaps it will be a little more desirable when the weather becomes warmer!
