After all the time spent at the Como Zoo in St. Paul, I could find a single photogenic animal to photograph. Either they were all indoors to escape the heat or they stood far, far away. I found this 1936 zoo building pretty neat, though. Its actually the old zoo building, with tiny iron cages lining the outside of the building– this is how the animals used to be kept. Luckily, today the animals have more room to move about. The original zoo building is now home to the zoo offices. I think its funny that the lions now have an outdoor habitat and the zoo staff works out of the old lion cage.
