Guadalajara Zoo

Guadalajara is a one hour drive from our house.  Our friend, J. C. told us they have a world class Zoo there, so yesterday, we went.  Wow, we were really impressed.  Nice animal enclosures and very clean.  Admission is 5 dollars for adults, and 3 dollars for children.  You will need one to two days to see everything.

Debbi at the steps leading to the animal enclosures.
Lots of  Boas and  venomous snakes in this reptile exhibit.
That's me with birds in the Aviary.  They were just inches away.
I don't know what this is, but it sure is pretty.
The sloth can hold this position for hours.  I think he's sleeping.
Up close and personal with the Giraffes.
This Rhino was huge.  Had to have weighed 3000 lbs!
We took a Safari bus through this area.  The animals roamed free for acres and acres.
The beautiful Flamingos.
Downtown Guadalajara is a nice place to wander around for 1-2 days.  And, more if you go to the Opera, the Symphony, or the Museums.  If you visit this city, make sure to put the Zoo on your list of things to do.
