    Default Zamboanguita Zoo Outing

    While the small zoo is not for everyone, to be sure, but for an 18 month old boy it may as well have been the San Diego Zoo. We had lunch at Mike's Beach Resort then drove out to the close-by zoo. Nice family outing.

    It sounds like a nice outing. What animals did you see and what was the condition of the place and the animals?

    There is no choice here unfortunately, but like you say pat for your son it was probably a great place! I stopped by at zambongita the other day to check out that other place with turtles linked to the zoo with three turtles in an 10 ft square pond. Again I did not stay long! And will never go back,my wife was talking with the owner and she mentioned they do not get a lot of custom,I wonder why! I really would love to raise enough money to set those turtles free so they can roam the oceans as they should do!

    Greg, we saw a large eagle, monkeys, a humongous croc, a python in a box which the caretaker opened the box and tapped on the snake's nose to wake him up, baby guiny pigs (sp), a wild boar, lots of long neck different birds, and in the museum a large number of stuffed animals including a big ape, and a deer. Probably some others as well. The big cat is no longer there. No one should go there with high expectations, except kids.

    Good enough. Thank you! Next time we are down that way we'll take Noah to see it. I think he would enjoy it.

    For you son, and a lot closer, Valencia Agricultural Center has a few animals... it is free. It has three monkeys, rabbits, and some huge bats. Which you can get very close too. There was also a snake. Just ask around, it is one street up from the park and parallel to the park street.

    There is also the Silaman Zoo, with it animals, and a the bridge walk experience to see the deer.

    Have fun.

    In another 17 years you could take him to Why Not, that is a real zoo with many human sub-species exhibited or is that sub-human species?
    This is Dave, Imp is sleeping again

    Although many of you bring your kids to Why Not, I am hopeful my son will rise above that place and bring his date to a more classy place.
