re: Any of you recall riding the elephants at the Audubon Zoo in the early 80's?
I used to have a plastic elephant key from Audubon zoo. The trunk stuck out and you’d put it in a black box in front of different cages and turn the key. A recording would come on and tell you about the animal.

This was in the 1970’s. The movie Cat People was filmed in the zoo so it captures some of the old zoo scenes.

They could put the elephants toward the back of the zoo, where the fat people are to tired to walk to.


They just ride scooters now

My wife and I took our nieces to Audubon Zoo in the mid eighties.
The girls were 6 and 8. We did ride the elephant.

Yes. there were elephant and camel rides. The gate/landing is still there I think, at the end of the Asia exhibit.

Bring this back. As he is a big supporter of the zoo,Gravy could fill this spot immediately as a fill in until a four legged elephant can be procured.

Yeah, me, my mom, dad, brother and little cousin took my moms 86 Carolla to the Zoo. My little cousin talked shite the while way there and back how he was going to ride to elephants. We get there and he pusses out. We get home and he tells his mom and dad that my mom and dad didnt let him ride it.
