My companion Hermana Chantrill and I have been talking about going to the Bioparc in our little ciudad for a long time now, and we finally made it a week before she leaves for home! There is more on that below, but first I wanted to share a bit more about my home-away-from-home, Fuengirola.
Except this poor guy. He must have fallen into the bug pit or something to have all his friends "helping" him out!
There were lots of trees and ponds. It was very pretty and the animals really beautiful.
Except this guy (a Komodo Dragon). Still pretty cool though. The path of the bioparc wandered around and around, letting you see each habitat from several different perspectives.
This peacock didn't seem to care for his habitat-mate very much. There were also crocodiles in the same exibit, which I found a bit weird.
I LOVE the coloring on this guy. He was in a greenhouse where you can walk right in amongst the birds. It was pretty cool.
This guy loved this spot of ground for some reason and when one of the other birds found an interesting stick in his area, he chased it out (but the little one managed to fly with that huge-for-him stick to a friendlier area). My companion, Hermana Chantrill, really liked his coloring, so I took her picture with him.
This "Baobab tree" was actually molded out of I think cement as part of the "Madagascar exhibit". They had some smaller cages with insects and snakes that were actually inside the "tree". There were no buildings inside the bioparc itself (outside of this one). All in all it was a very pleasant afternoon, not too cold, not too hot, and fun to boot!
