Little girl the snow leopard is my favorite animal to photograph at the zoo. I could spend hours next to her exhibit! It’s so incredible to be able to see the big cats close up and I’m humbled by their power.
Favorite Thing About Potter Park Zoo
The animals here at the zoo are truly ambassadors for their individual species. To see how they inspire and teach visitors about their species in the wild is an amazing thing to see.
