ZOO #3


Chic Silber said...

Although compact this zoo

has a vast assortment of

animals well presented in

a great park like setting

It is conveniently located

directly adjacent to the

Central Railway Station

I remember you could see some of the trains in the station from the top of the bear enclosures. Great zoo, some classic buildings and some amazing animals.

Beware! Diamond merchants on the other side of the station.

Chic Silber said...

Isn't it the diamond cutting

capitol of the world Bob

(or is it 48th Street in NY)

Antwerp zoo proves that you do not need huge acreage to have a world class zoo.

Chic Silber said...

I was truly amazed at how much

& how well presented it all was

The design & layout along with

incredible land & tree scapeing

allowed each exhibit area seem

to be alone in view

Chic Silber said...

I have no idea about the current

state of the Toronto Zoo but many

years back when in it's infancy

there seemed to be a gazillion

open acres with very few animals

& not much else to enjoy

Chic Silber said...

I've had great opportunities

to visit some of the world's

finest zoos with incredible

collections presented well

A favorite is Taronga Zoo

across Sydney Harbor from

Circular Quay where all the

ferries start from
