A postman merely has to be at the right place at the right time and not even a coked up pit bull would want to attack.

\and yes, the open grating on a skywalk was the first thing I thought of too

If a tiger wants to pee on you at most zoo enclosures, he'll do it and you'll smile and like it.  I have vivid memories of being four or five at the Cleveland Zoo and reaching the big cat enclosures.  I was awestruck at the beauty of this big, powerful Bengal tiger prowling back and forth in his cage.  This was the beginning of a lifelong love affair with tigers which led ultimately to me holding and feeding a tiger cub this past year at a large cat rescue reserve in Oklahoma.  Such was the depth of my love that it was unbroken by the cat rearing up a hind leg and spritzing me with tiger pee.  My parents were upset, seeing their child in front of them drenched in tiger pee.  But all I could do was stand there with a silly smile on my face because, of all the zoo visitors he could have peed on, he chose me.

It occurred to me when I saw it. It's a good thing they have keepers telling people to back off while the orangutans cross, because orangutan shiat from that high up makes quite the splatter.

When I was a kid, there was a zoo nearby that had a tiger that kids could pet.  (It was a different time, you see.)  My dad was so disappointed that I wouldn't get anywhere near the tiger.  I was just a little kid but I knew tigers ate meat and I was made (mostly) of meat.  As an adult, I regret not rubbing that tiger's belly.  Now I'd probably have to go to another country with looser liability laws to pet a full grown tiger.

BTW, I wonder how many times they had to poke that tiger to get it to go to the other side.  Every time I go to the zoo, the big cats are sleeping.  Occasionally, one will roll over then go back to sleep.

No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

Yeah, people are definitely gonna get pooped and peed on. I was at the National Zoo in DC and they have a rope course high above a pedestrian area where orangutans  can walk from one of the areas to another. Watched as one stopped and peed right down on people from above.

That's because they are CATS.  They sleep like 22 hours out of the day.

Go be there during the 120 minutes they're awake doing things.  You gotta be committed to see a moving tiger.

Tigers are pretty sensitive to heat. If you want to see them up and moving, go to the zoo on a cool, cloudy day. If it's 50° or so they will be frolicking about like kittens.

They're cats; curiosity is one of their defining characteristics.  Give them somewhere new to explore and they can't resist.  No poking needed.

An elephant sneezed on me at the Philly Zoo when I was on my 5th grade class trip. I was like a celebrity for a while. Sadly, this will never again happen to a youngster at this zoo seeing as how they no longer keep elephants. A zoo with out elephants, come on now, I doubt the gay ass Bird Sanctuary is ever going to pay for itself. The big cats don't give a shiat about walking in a stupid raised tube, so I predict failure here as a well. The information and educational related staff and volunteers are great, the maintenance and box office staff are ignorant and lazy.

Elephants need way too much space, among other things, to be kept happy in a zoo.

I was at the Ueno Zoo outside Tokyo when I was a kid, and three of the elephants had colds.  They kept on sneezing on the crowd.  Me and my friends had umbrellas, so, we just watched as the elephants sneezed on the crowds passing by.
