So this afternoon I went with Claire, Nick (the other fellow) and a friend of his, Amanda (who kindly drove) to the zoo. And it was a lot of fun.
Some of the displays were very much old-style zoo exhibits but it was obvious that the zoo was being renovated and enclosures updated.
There were a lot of animals spread out over a surprisingly big area, it was definitely larger than Edinburgh Zoo and the enclosures were separated by gardens and forested areas. A lovely place to be on such a warm sunny day.
I’ve put all the images in an album which you can look through, but I’ve put a few favourite pictures in this post.
Little Penguins (I learnt today that the Spanish for penguin is penguino… so cute!)
