Hola,

Luckily I have this amazing zoo in my area and I try to get there at least once a year. Here are some pics from my last visit.

Cruziohyla craspedopus (my favorite amphibian)

Protobothrops mangshanensis (a large, stunning viper species that was only discovered in 1990)

Trimeresurus insulari

Chitra chitra
(A really large softshell turtle. If you've watched River Monsters, Jeremy Wade caught a Chitra sp when he was fishing for Bagarius yarelli)

Shinisaurus crocodilurus

Simalia boeleni
(This is my dream snake and this one has grown quite a bit from when I last saw it as a rusty red neonate)

Lazy day for the zoo's Black-and-white colobus group.

Cats will be cats, regardless of their size. Give them a nice sunny spot and they'll just flop down without a care in the world.

My favorite big cat, the Jaguar. He's usually quite active and he was patrolling the perimeter of his enclosure when he heard a keeper off exhibit, so he posted up at the door, waiting.

Spectacled Owls, a really cool species and one of the few owls that call the tropical rainforest home.

Victorian Crowned Pigeon. A large, really vibrant bird with amazing plumage on the head.

Rhinoceros hornbill pair.

Toco Toucan. These guys are quite personable and curious. If you calmly sit down next to their enclosure for a bit and not a lot of people walk by, they'll come over to say hi.
