Pictures taken at the Stone Zoo, Jaunary 29th, 2005 (21 pictures)

I needed to get out of the house, so I went to the Stone Zoo on Jaunary 29th, 2005, which is in Stoneham, Massachusetts. It is a nice little zoo, but it is hard to get good shots, since everything is through a chain link fence or through plexiglass.
