You hit it on the nose...

They both have different uses. The 17-55 is better for landscape and indoor photos but is a bit weak in the area of zooming outdoors for like you said, the zoo. The 24-105 can do a bit of landscape (not as good though), and can do ok indoors if the light is decent (especially non moving subjects) but is strong as a general purpose outdoors when your unsure if you need to get a bit wide or zoom in close to a subject.

I find the 24-105 suits my needs a bit more. You must ask yourself which fits you most.

Darkness is the monster and your shutter is your sword, aperture your shield and iso your armor. Strike fast with your sword and defend well with your shield and hope your armor holds up.
