How do you know that there are ten states with more than one zoo mentioned? Might not one state have three zoos mentioned?

You're missing the best part:

From the sfist -
The Intrepid Travel, some sort of online travel guide -- one that clearly has no access to the internets, TV, newspapers, phones, water coolers -- is bestowing the SF Zoo (along with 60 others) with the title of Best Zoo of 2008.

@3, that's because it is the best zoo (along with 60 others). Every other zoo has pussies instead of real tigers.

It's because the staff eats the most tender young elephant a lab can create.

Is Manosi Lahari one of Jhumpa Lahiri's ne'er-do-well siblings?

Wow, that's one of the worst web sites I've seen in a looooong time.

Actually, the best part is that the forward was written by Newt Gingrich.

@8 - that's enough to keep me from reading it.

#2 is right. For all we know, Washington has one, and the other 59 are all in Kentucky.

"Here be yaks" are my favorite three words ever put in a row.

I've been to quite a few zoos, and I can assure you that the 60th-best zoo in America is pretty dreadful. Woodland Park has got to be in the top ten, I would hope. But then, I don't think there really are any excellent zoos in the States; there are at least three in Australia, a country of 20 million, that are far better than anything I've seen here.

And any zoo that maintains an exhibit of African humans, as does Woodland Park, gets quite a few points knocked off.
