Happy as a child at San Diego Zoo!

Australia? No, San Diego Zoo! In Koalafornia!

San Diego Zoo is proud to host the largest colony of Koala bears outside Autralian territory. I hadn´t been to a zoo in many many years but after reading that San Diego Zoo has a reputation for its very well designed zoo, that hosts more than 650 species, I was convinced I needed to pay it a vistit. Viewing animals is just so soothing. Here are some of the beauties I met during our day at the zoo.

  1. how nice this image!

  2. Super sharp, nice images, especially at higher resolution.

  3. I love the zoo too!

  4. I’ve heard so much about that zoo. It’s supposed to be very animal friendly, resembling the animals’ natural habitats:) We’ve planned to visit San Diego one of the days, but I’m not sure that one day will be enough…

    • Yeah, to be a zoo, I think they have done a very good job! I enjoyed it! Actually that was probably what I liked most about SD.
