Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What’s your favorite zoo animal?

    There’s no real zoo in Maine, but there a couple of “animal parks”. The parks usually house rescued exotic critters. You get personal tours and you get MUCH closer to the animals than one usually does at a zoo. last time we went we got to feed M&Ms to a black bear, we got to watch a hyena devour and annihilate a deer leg (scary!), we got roared at and charged by a a male lion (thank God for sturdy fencing!), we got slimed by drooling camels, and one of our kids got sprayed by a male tiger (Eeewwwww!)

    My fave? The black bear. He was friendly and funny and sweet and entertaining.

    Oh that’s a tough call – I’m torn between the wild cats and the monkeys (I don’t have a specific type of either, I love them all).

    Mine is the giraffe. I think it is because they are so tall.

    We have a cool polar bear exhibit, so even though it’s not necessarily my fav animal, it is my favorite ZOO animal! Great question!

    I have always been partial to polar bears too…my hubby and I are huge polar bear fans… they’re so cute for being so big!

    any of the baby animals. We get disappointed when our zoo’s nursery is empty, but of course that means the mammas are taking care of the babies themselves so that’s good! but we don’t get to see the babies close up.

    I wish that our zoo was better made, most of the time when we go the animals are already asleep cuz they’re bored. sigh

    I like gorillas and lions. For years, I’ve had recurring dreams about lions – that one was on the loose somewhere near me and I was trying to get away before it found me. They scare the heck out of me, but, I think they are really beautiful.

    Okay, it’s not monkeys! I hate monkeys! I know, kind of surprising with a site called Blue Monkey Butt. No, I love the elephants!

    St. Louis has a great zoo and we love going, it is free too. The children’s zoo part has Missouri River Otters and they are my favorite!

    I love the elephant and the giraffe. Sadly the giraffe at the local zoo died before my son could see it.

    I just pasted mine.

    Oh, that is such a hard one because I am a HUGE animal lover–I love the monkeys!! But then I really, REALLY love the big cats (tigers and lions!!) They are JUST so gorgeous!!) And–then of course, the penquins make me laugh! So, I guess you can just say I love them ALL!!

    My favorite animal is the Jaguar – such a pretty animal, but I’m glad it’s behind a glass barrier.

    Giraffes are my favourite. I never thought much of them until I saw them at one of those wildlife places in Europe. I was absolutely mesmerized by how tall and beautiful they are.

    Panda bears. I saw them this summer at the Atlanta zoo. So adorable! All these cute little kids were around saying, “look mommy, it’s Kung Fu Panda”. My kids are teens – I miss that stuff :)

    Baby koalas! Last time we were at the San Francisco Zoo, they had a baby koala. Oh it was so cute, and so tiny.

    After that, the pandas at the DC Zoo! Awww.
