Being at the zoo in Amsterdam was a bit bittersweet. Animals are kept in a unnatural way, captivated and far away from their natural elements. Keeping animals in a zoo is not natural, even though it’s been done for a long time. Thinking about this, it’s good to know that some of the animals that comes to the zoo is injured/hurt and would not have survived in the real life.
Knowing all this, it’s still pretty awesome to see all the different animals located in the zoo. There were so many exotic and interesting animals there; elephants, lions, monkies, wolves, zebras, wallabys, voltures etc.
We spent the entire day at the zoo and there wasn’t one boring moment throughout the whole day. I had lots of ‘wow-moments’, especially when we saw the gigantic and colorful butterflies and the zebras. There were also quite some ‘awww-moments’ too. How can you not go awww when you see penguins and baby elephants?
I took lots of photos at the zoo. You’ve already seen photos from the Aquarium. Here are some of the rest of the zoo.
