We were there for a week, and man, did we enjoy ourselves? Yes we did!
Let me start this series of London posts with introducing you to the ZSL London Zoo. I love visiting local zoos when I travel, so I was looking forward to this visit. It turned out to be rather expensive to get in (£25 for one ticket = almost EUR30 or almost US$40). Fortunately we got in for only half that price because we had a weekly travel card, which gives you discounts on many of the sights that tourists visit.
ZSL means (The) Zoological Society of London, and was founded in 1826.
Let me show you just a little selection of animals, we saw.
I found this little seahorse exceedingly cute:
There was a house full of exotic and beautiful birds. I'm not a huge fan of birds in general, but it's nice to look at some pretty and colourful ones.
The monkeys here had a large area where they lived. They weren't in cages as such, if they wanted to take a closer look at the audience (as in: Is that ice cream for me?), then they were free to.
I find monkeys fascinating; especially if and when they're as active and playful as this flock was.
We also saw creepy crawly - my favourite photographic object
And we made very good friends with this donkey. I fed it with leaves and it "Hee-Haw'ed" right back at me!
The last picture I'll share with you today is this beautiful lizard.
I enjoyed my trip around the Zoo a lot. There were many interesting animals and the garden was well maintained. I must admit that I find £25 too much for a ticket. Copenhagen Zoo charges £17 and that's a much better Zoo in my opinion. But I am happy since we got in for £25 instead of £50.
Did you enjoy the little photo tour I made for you? Have you got a local Zoo near you? Is it worth visiting?
