Would you part with your hard-earned 400php for a Zoobic Safari tour?
A carabao with a congenital deficiency of pigment in the skin and hair (albinism) cools itself at the Zoobic Park. Saw lots of these types of beasts plowing the rice paddies of Camarines Sur.
Hang around with these freely roaming, brains-smaller-than-their-eye birds at the Savannah. These ostriches loves to peck on human butts, so watch your asses!
“Kiss me bayoutiful.”
Small thrill at the HIP-HOP BAY-A-WALK. Cross the creek hopping on these stones. Careful, “bayawaks” underneath.
The Serpentarium. Not so hair-raising display snakes. No action here.
At the Pavillion, a beast awaits for some dolt to pose for a shot with him for 240 php.
Small briefing of where to go and what to see. The tour guide (Andy) must be fed up with his monotonous job. Speaks mostly in local dialect the whole tour and doesn’t really care if foreigners get to know what the hell he is talking about or not.
This Thomas and Friends-like train will be your shuttle ride from start to finish. Or, you may use your own private vehicle. Some tourists prefer the latter.
I believe this is the main thing here in Zoobic Safari. The attack of the big cats! But dont be deceived by those thrilling images on the internet or some print medias showing these tigers attacking tourists inside those caged-in vehicles. Truth is, these docile beasts are really going for those dressed chickens which we have to pay for a whooping cost of 200 php. Otherwise, you’ll just be passing by snoring kittens.
At first I thought we will be feeding live chickens!
At the AETAS TRAIL, a 5-minute dance show of “modern” aetas.
A chilling 2-meter gap from a voracious reptile.
What used to be bunkers, now souvenir shops.
The national bird of India.
Note the hanging dressed chicken. Pay 50 php for some action.
The gloomy, cold corner of the python.
Bullying around, mountain goats presume the whole zoo is their own.
