So, yeah. Last time we talked about the inside of this wonderful animal sanctuary, so let’s move outwards and onwards, shall we?
To begin with, we walked along a stone pathway with high, branching leaves obscuring the majority on my vision. Then, it opened out into a wonderful area of meerkats, strange mammals and beautiful birds.
I’m not going to lie, I had no clue what the majority of things there were, only that they were captivating. We honestly just stared at the meerkats for over an hour- they were so cheeky and cute and THERE WERE BABY MEERKATS. I really couldn’t control myself.
The birds were very pretty, if a little terrifying. They had a kind on high-and-mighty elegance to them, kind of like a merciless ruler who wouldn’t think twice about poking your eyes out.
There was also a snow leopard, but that was behind glass, so I couldn’t get a really good picture of it. Still, the experience was amazing. It was really, truly incredible. There was a set of mates with a young litter, although, unfortunately, I didn’t get to see them, but the parents made up for it. Usually, big cats just lay around doing nothing, but at the time, they were being fed, so they were particularly active. Despite being a little bit gruesome, it was still fascinating.
But, by far, my favourite part was the lemurs. We got to go into the enclosure with these, and, again, they were being fed (I’m pretty sure we may have hijacked a small child’s birthday party, but what can you do) and their derpy expressions and wildly outrageous behaviour amused me to no end.
It really was a wonderful trip.
Have a great day.
