What do you mean it's "ok??" This zoo is friggin awesome!! The Huffington Post knows what I'm talking about, they have it listed as number five on their top ten list of best zoos in the WORLD!
Cute signs are just one of the things that made me fall in love with this zoo
Ok, so... the only other zoo that I've been to in my life, that I can recall, is the Philadelphia Zoo - and all I remember from being there is concrete and cages.... and some animals.
It's nothing like that at the Belize Zoo -
"Animals of Belize in their Natural Habitats"
It's true - other than being on nice walkways and going over little wooden bridges, I felt like I was walking through the jungle the whole time I was in there.
No molesting the plants
I don't even know where to start.... I seriously took 374 pictures.
Ok, we're starting with the National Animal of Belize, the Tapir - aka the mountain cow
a lil swimmin action
Looks like a giant guinea pig/ anteater, doesn't it?
I don't usually like birds very much - I don't know why, just never have - but I met the friendliest parrots today....
This one loved to pose for the camera
Syd (I think) and Charlie
For $10bz ($5us) you can feed them peanuts!
There's so much more to show you.... but the internet connection is slooooooooow tonight and I'm busy watching Family Guy now.
Look for Part 2 tomorrow - I snapped some great shots of the jaguars!!!
