The Belize Zoo, Part 2

Sounds good to me.

I'm going to add the link to my Flickr account so you can go through ALL of the pictures from my day at the zoo if you want to - but here are some of my favorites...

The King Vulture enclosure



Looking for Zorro

two tiny Zorro's!



The pond for the smaller crocs, and LOTS of turtles

the BIG crocs

I was happy to learn that all of the animals kept here have either been orphaned, rescued, rehabilitated, born at the zoo, or donated by other "zoological institutes," - meaning none of them were captured and drug into captivity just to show them off or make money off of them. 
Many of them are even safer in the zoo, I suppose, since so many of them are endangered.


 The Harpy Eagle - an endangered species due to loss of habitat

she's so big and pretty!

 Only 800 Jaguars left in Belize :(

Awwwwwwwwww!!!!!

I'm still kind of upset that I was allowed to feed the Macaws, but I wasn't allowed to hug a jaguar.
 I think I would've been fine...



HERE is the link to the rest of the album.
