We (my mom and I) went to the Albuquerque BioPark with my Aunt Laura.
First, I went to the aquarium. There was all kinds of fish there!
I especially liked the sharks. They were huge!
The aquarium also had jellyfish, which were rather interesting.
The zoo itself had a much wider variety, including almost everything I wanted to see. The serval, a type of wild cat, fascinated me.
It was a hot day, so many of the animals were out of sight or not moving. The serval was not one of these. It was pacing back and forth right beside the glass. It wasn’t the only one, the lion felt the same way, occasionally growling.
There was a large group of flamingos looking for their lost Airstream.
I had been looking forward to the wolves, but they were hiding in the shade where no one could see them.
The reptile house was cool, the snakes were moving and we found a cage with the lizards inside chasing each other! There were some very large snakes, and there were even Komodo Dragons and Gila Monsters, which of course were amazing.
It was a hot day, so the kangaroos were laying down, splayed across the ground.
There were some deer-like animals, laying down in the shade with tiny antlers.
The African hunting dogs were laying down, but looked cool all the same. The African hunting dogs were very, very similar to the hyenas.
The seals were swimming around, rubbing against the glass, showing off their swimming skills.
All in all, the trip was most definitely worth it.
