It has been a long time since I visited a zoo, I am far more used to visiting the Safari Park where animals have large areas to roam, it was sad to see the larger animals in such confined spaces but they all looked healthy and well cared for.
Some of my favourites were the tiny frogs and pretty birds.
Every time I tried to take a photo Mr Owl turned his head, patience won the day.
Penguins at play
Mr Lion had two wives in the cage with him
This Lynx looked so healthy
Mr Deer also had two ladies with him
Not sure what these were called, Worty Pigs I think
The Japanese section
Our tickets are valid for a free return all week so we may go back, there was so much to see.
On the way back to the hotel we stopped to pick up a couple of things from Aldi and the view from the car park was just breath taking.
It was so nice to see a group of school children in their wetsuits learning to surf, something you could not even dream about when I was at school!
