What a day... We visited the Centre Zoologic Lloc de Menorca; I've known about it for years, but never visited. Zoos have the potential to be rather depressing, but Menorca Zoo wasn't: it was charming, characterful, and the (mostly rescue) animals seemed well situated, in high morale, and healthy.
We saw all sorts: terrapins and tortoises, crocodiles and caimans, ostriches and emus, and wallabies with joeys...They've primates (crab-eating macaques, marmosets, ring-tailed lemurs, red-ruffed lemurs, cotton-top tamarins), domestics (inc. rabbits, guinea pigs, and ducks), reptiles (inc. blue-tongued skinks, boa constrictors, and a reticulated python), farm animals (inc. cockerels, cows, pigs, and goats), birds of prey, and koi carp. The local fauna sneaks in too (inc. wall lizards, bees, and grasshoppers...).
