Visit Prague Zoo for a day out of the city
There is nothing like a trip to the zoo to bring out your inner child. Nostalgic memories of visits to farms and zoo’s flooded back as I walked around Prague’s amazing zoo, not only the biggest in the Czech Republic but also rated the best zoo in Europe.
Covering 58 hectares of land, Prague Zoo has over 150 exhibits and one of the best breeding programs in Europe with an estimated 1370 new animals bred and reared at the zoo.
When it comes to zoo’s I have two different opinions. Firstly I think zoo’s are a great environment to help preserve animal species, encourage growth in numbers of endangered animals and educate people of different animals starting from a young age. But while walking around the zoo the other part of me feels sad that such animals are caged and kept behind glass when they should be out in the wild. But in this day in age, without zoos and conservation projects some of the animals I saw would cease to exist.
Prague’s Zoo is by far one of the best zoo’s I have been to and as their breeding program is so successful it puts my mind at ease that at least the animals must be happy, even if they are behind bars.
I am a big lover of wildlife and animals so a day at the zoo is great fun for me and it’s great fun for children and adults of all ages. Here are some of the pictures I took during my day at the Zoo, beware of extreme cuteness on the way!
The Zoo has 291 species of birds including Vultures, Owls and Blue Macaus!
The Zoo has an amazing African Exhibit with Giraffes, Zebra, Hippos, Elephants, Lions and Buffalo.
Prague Zoo has a lovely family of Gorillas with Daddy (Richard) Silverback and a new addition a baby called Nuru!
I like to move it move it!
