So last week the family and I went to the zoo. I was really excited because my zoo trips are quite few and happened a long time ago.
I was also really excited because we were taking my sister’s 3 year old and her 11 month old twins and I was looking forward to having them enjoy the out doors and the general experience.
Obviously the twins are least likely to have as much fun as the 3 year old.
But surprisingly they had a great time enjoying the fresh air and the activity around them. So that was amazing.
Unfortunately the zoo was not as impressive as I had hoped. I saw snakes I think pythons. I saw horses (rolls eyes), I saw goats ( common! These roam the streets here) I saw two not very healthy looking camels even though I was told they were really young in reference to their size.
I saw buffalos, I saw various species of monkeys and two baboons.
I saw two turtles or is it tortoise . What’s the difference? Anyway they were really big. A male and a female. I can’t remember if one was 200 or 80 years old. I found out the males grow way bigger than the females. And some really curious Nigerians decided to sit and climb on the bigger of the turtles just because they were told about how strong it’s shell is. And I am like really?
Don’t get me wrong I was intrigued but come on!!! Riding a turtles back? Seriously!
I saw crocodiles and their baby. Or was it an alligator? Well there where also rabbits, ostrich, peacock,guinea fowl etc.
Nothing wild lifey though or ferocious. So a little disappointed again.
Anyway all in all it was a good day and I had fun.
Here are some pictures
Crocodile/alligator not sure 😁
There are more interesting pictures but my network won’t let me upload them lol.
So tell me about your local zoo.
What has been the most interesting and shocking thing about it.
😁 I look forward to your reply.
