Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Some moms took a walk on the wild side with a trip to the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park on Mother's Day.

Mothers got in for free at the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park on Sunday.

Families from all over the Southern Tier took the trek along the trails to admire the animals.

The lemurs and the red panda drew huge crowds.

For Tracy Callender, of Sidney, a trip to the zoo was the perfect way to spend her second Mothers Day.

"It's a nice chance to get out. The weather was fairly decent, so it was a good chance to come out and spend the day with my son," Callender said.
