  • Today in the Moscow Zoo. Few people have seen. Of course, winter etc. But winter is most of the year and exposure necessary to arrange accordingly. In January we were at the Zoo in Nizhny Novgorod. See more animals. There organized everything so that you can see all the winter and without pity or disgust. So, perhaps, for nothing Moscow Zoo refuses to move to the new location. Today our mood did Japanese Macaque (but they recognized stars on the most happening place), peacocks (they came out of the cage and sang, though is their loud "Mjaau" definitely not singing), and gorillas. The latter can remain pressed very long. There's the male with the appearance of King Kong lives with big family who relentlessly monitors them and "shhemitsja" as teenagers nearby. This common model of the family, which I personally would not want to live.
