Summer means our yearly visit to the Norwegian Zoo in Kristiansand, with my two dear friends Camilla and Elisabeth! We always try to go before the busiest summer months start, simply because it can be so stressful to walk around and look at the animals when there’s literately thousands of people trying to do the same. Just like last year, we picked a perfect day! There were so few people, and the weather wasn’t too hot and sunny, so the animals were all active and easy to spot. We even got to see some proper lion action (as well as the tigers!), which rarely happens since they usually just sleep in the shade when it’s hot. I’ve been to quite a few zoo’s, but I got to say that there’s no other zoo that can even come close to the one in Kristiansand! Always a great success, as it was this year as well (:

Went to the zoo with one of my friends this week, hoping to get some great pictures of all the animals. Unfortunately, most of the animals were either sleeping or… not there. A lot of empty cages made the day into something that could remind us of a game of “hide and seek”. The animals were hiding, and we couldn’t find them. Also, most of the animals had very limited space, which made me kind of sad. I’m used to the amazing zoo in Kristiansand, where the all the animals have huuuuge areas.
Anyways! It was a nice day, and we did get to se the giant panda (you have to book an appointment to meet the panda!), and we had a good time in the quest of finding the animals.
Don’t think I will go back, though. I prefer them in their wild habitat, not in a 5×5 m cage.
