The cafeteria is strategically located in the middle of the 7.5 hectare of collection of animals that Avilon Zoo. We were tired and thirsty from walking. Surely we needed something really soft and comfortable to sit down such as the couch cushion at this site but we survived with water and some ice cream.
After all, we are all excited to see what more are instore for us with the other 3.75 hectare of land.
This was a new attraction at the time: The American Black Bear.
He looks like Winnie the Pooh, don’t you think?
I love the Flamingos. They look sosyal and delicate and really elegant with their pink legs and immaculate feathers.
Look at how sweaty the kids are in this photo, but they are still willing to pose.
Turtles and Tortoises
There are many kinds of turtles and tortoises in Avilon Zoo. They have big and small kinds and those that have been there for many years. The kids were surprised that a few are older than them!
Ooops! Looks like these two are having their private moment… Let’s leave them, shall we?
Oooh.. looks like they are having a party over here…
It was my first time to see a Capybara and I think it’s cute. It’s the animal that captured my interest.
The Capybara is the largest rodent in the world. Imagine a rat the size of a pig or a dog…
Native to South America, the capybara inhabits savannas and dense forests and lives near bodies of water. It is a highly social species and can be found in groups as large as 100 individuals, but usually lives in groups of 10–20 individuals.
They look cute enough to hug!
There was a another Fun Feeding and Petting Area at the zoo where you can buy carrots to fee rabbits and guinea pigs.
And you can take photo with pretty and colorful birds.
That concludes our day at Avilon Zoo. We had fun and the entrance fee is well worth it.
