In conjunction with Houston Zoo Lights, when the zoo is transformed into a winter wonderland, we asked KPRC Local 2 anchors to share their favorite zoo animals.
Dominique loves the African lion.
Bill loves the massive elephants.
Frank's favorite is the snow leopard.
Randy said he's a "big fan" of the lions and giraffes."
Owen said the lion is his favorite. It IS the king of the jungle, after all.
Lauren's favorite animal is the monkey. She said "they're funny."
The first animal that came to mind for Anthony was the komodo dragon. "It’s so large and unique, it had an impact on me," he said.
Jennifer's favorite is the adorable baby elephants.
Rachel's favorite is the flamingo because their long legs and beautiful pink feathers remind her of her days as a child when she trained as a ballerina, wearing pink, of course!
Keith's favorite -- the lion. "They're way more awesome and noble than lions," he said.
Baby elephants are also Khambrel's favorites.
Courtney prefers the leopard. Of course, she's known for her love of animal print!
Mary Lee said, "My favorite animal is a panda because pandas are cute, cuddly and just eat, sleep and play all day!"
When Andy visits the zoo, he heads for the orangutans....
AND the chimpanzees.
Irika is partial to the tiger.
Phillip's favorite is also the tiger!
