Miami Zoo (part 3)

The ending.

I know, I've been procrastinated this post for quite sometime now. I have to end this.  Okay, here are my previous post related of this story part 1 and part 2 in case you missed them. 

Anyways, Miami Zoo or Zoo Miami is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida, and the only tropical zoo in the continental United States. It is located in southwest of Miami in southern metropolitan Miami-Dade County. It houses over 2,000 animals on 740 acres, 324 acres of which are developed. It is about 3 mi (5 km) around if walked on the path, and has over 100 exhibits. - according from wikipedia.

It really amazes me to see a tremendous zoo with thousands of animals from around the world. I haven't seen like this before. The animals are not in the cage except those insects, fish (some are in the ponds too), snakes, anaconda, poisonous frogs, and birds. The rest are in the open huge land, it really made them feels at home.  As far as the fences it has but very low and far from them towards us. In between has a gutter, huge hole in case the animals jump off they will go straight to that gutter. It very safe for both animals and people. I'm glad they did that cause it's not nice to watch animals in the cage. Its like they're prisoners. Over all it was a nice experienced. A very memorable one.

In the zoo they have this beautiful water scenery can find in the Amazon park area. Pretty amazing. I feel like I'm in the other world.

Why the color of elephant is orange? Because they stays in the mud rolling their body around  it like a kid playing the sand. Its pretty cute though when they does that. Does it the elephant looks like a mammoth? Oh, I wish the mammoth are still excess. It could have been awesome seeing the elephants and mammoths together.

Giraffe. My first up-close-and personal experienced with them. It was a blast moment.  I was giddy seeing them.

Giraffe knew how harmless I am that's why she let me kiss her and pet her.  I bought her a cabbage for $2 over that certain park, and fed until she finishes it. They're very sweet and adorable. Height doesn't really matter.

Apes. Such like a human being. Their toes, hands. They have humors too. Very funny. I love observing them they're entertainers.

Sloth Bear. She's a predator. I cringed! Regardless of her character I was happy to met her in person. At least I can tell she's real unlike watching them just on TV.
