There is a zoo about an hour away from us. I am drawing a blank on the name. It's about 15-20 minutes past the Port so it's a nice drive to see the coast. If someone reads this and knows the name, please leave it in the comments. The park has a zoo and a water park, as well as some small cabins for rent. I think the owners are Jewish. reason one, because I saw a few passages from the old testament painted on murals and secondly, because the zoo is closed on Saturdays. I'm thinking this is in observance of the sabbath which according to the old testament and Jewish law it would be considered a sin to work on the day of the Lord.
The zoo seems to be well kept. The animals look like they are fed well, not under stress and the cages are clean. The only complaint that I would have, and this is true of so many places in Honduras, is that they do not maintain their bathrooms very well. With a lot of traffic, bathrooms really needs to have better attention.
There are many different kinds of trees and plants on the grounds and they put signs stating the type of tree/flower/plant it is. One such tree had me smelling the air it was so fragrant and really quite beautiful. It was a pepper tree which I think was this. The sign read, if I remember correctly, "pimenta grande".
All in all it was a great day. I tried to take lots of photos to show what types of animals they had but as always, I look back and think I should have taken more. This was our second time to the zoo and it didn't disappoint. I hope you enjoy the show I made. I wish I would have had more space on my digital camera for more footage of Brother chasing the birds. He really enjoyed running after those poor things.
