The Buenos Aires Zoological Park is pretty nice!
They seem to have done their best to provide adequate
room and comfort for the creatures living there.
Some look happier than others but that might just be me,
I have become less of a fan of zoos,
although I realize that they are at least alive and safe here.
But we won't get into the politics and ethics of zoos here.
We spent a very nice afternoon, hanging out with
the Elephants and Rhinos and Bears.
The Monkeys looked a bit too bored
and the Polar Bear was napping in the shade,
but everyone else looks busy ...
The old buildings that house the animals are wonderful,
at least from the outside.
Birds and small creatures walked around loose.
You could feed them special zoo food but I didn't buy any.
I had this mental picture of being mobbed by hungry mongooses
or something that looks half rabbit and half deer.
They seem to be thriving at the zoo, there were many baby animals with the adults.
There was a Flamingo Island and a Rain Forest and an Aviary.
Condors and Llamas and Mandrills and
Lions and (white) Tigers and Bears.
It was definitely worth visiting and next time I will be sure the battery is not dead in my camera.
Thanks ever so much !! to my husband, the man who saves the day ... He took all of these photos.
