With a military discount, we got in for $13! Otherwise it would have been $25 - which in my books is still rather reasonable. It's a small zoo, but a nice walkabout. Some exhibits were without critters . . . I always wonder where the critters have gone off to. Then, some exhibits have shy critters (i.e. the hyena, the lion, the orangutan). But, other than that, it's a quaint little hour to spend. We skipped the kiddie part (basically domestic animals - ah, yeah, they smell terrible) and we skipped the gift shop (don't tell anyone, 'kay?). This sign was cute. I've been to two of the zoos on this sign. If you can guess the two correctly, I may send you some shortbread cookies shaped like pineapples.
Gotta love these turtles. How funny are they?
This honking huge tortoise swam over to check us out partly above water at first, then it disappeared in the water and we could barely make it out when he got to us and popped back up for a peek. We laughed so hard. Look at his nostrils. I love nostrils.
This bird was in the enclosure that was supposed to have some warthog in it, I think. No warthog. There was a mama peacock and chicks though. This bird acted as if it was the proud papa . . . it came over straight away to tell us to mind our own business. I think that's what it was on about. I clucked at it and it "charged" at us and clacked back!
This is one of the five Sumatran tigers at the zoo. So worth seeing. We were lucky they weren't all just lying about. This one got up and moved around and even snarled a bit.
The kids with a peacock. They could name this zoo the Peacock Zoo. There are that many of these things flocking about.
And, this is the gratuitous shot. He's so cute when he gets to experience live animals. My happy boy.
