Asian Zing

One of the coolest aspects of a zoo, is when they decorate the area where the exotic animals are with exotic props. Of course, it’s all fake… those rocks are just papier-mâché, and that building doesn’t actually have monks in it, etc… but even though you know it’s not real, you still like to go with it, pretend, and get all emotionally jacked up before you see those Panda bears don’t you? Maybe that’s why Disney World is so popular…

This shot came from the Asian section of the Memphis Zoo. Along with the Pagoda thingy in the picture above, they also had a huge bell that periodically gonged, concrete fanged-Lion & Buddha statues, a pond filled with exotic ducks and fo-bamboo fencing near the Panda exhibit.
