Many of the exhibits at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI, are constructed so that visitors can see at least the faces of the animals without looking through fencing, posts or wires. Presumably these exhibits include those animals unable to escape from these enclosures that take advantage of elevation differences, moats, or an animal’s disability.
However, there is a plexiglas barrier between you and the big cats, making for a tough shot of these leopards piled up together on a rock in the sun.
It was late morning on a warm fall day when we went and many of the animals were resting, but the elephants and giraffes were very actively having lunch.
