Mendoza Zoo with Spencer and Melinda

The zoo was a once in a life time experience. I have over a 100 pictures. I put the picture of the lioness in to show how close we were to the animals. The monkeys were just out in the trees swinging, and that Jacob's sheep has four horns (only found in S. A.). No barriers, no motes, just a little chain link fence. In many of the cage areas you could climb up the rock on the side and jump right in. There were ladders down into the cages for the water animals that anyone could climb down, and the steep terrain was sometimes a hazard. This was the most tranquil zoo experience I have ever had. The animals looked well cared for and healthy.
