A private collection of animals shared with the public for free.
The Baluarte Zoo sits on the side of a hillside, its 80 hectares of land houses a diverse collection of animals. Near the entrance you will be greeted by what could be the biggest pair of tigers you will ever see. And I do mean huge! I didn’t even want to go near them after taking their photo. You see it was nearing lunch time and by the looks of things they might have been the last stop of the feeders. Inside the complex I was drawn to the various colorful birds as well as the grazing animals. I came near the camel who seemed uninterested at the guy disturbing his lunch. I saw the range and there was a handful of them just snapping along the healthy grass minding their own business.
Ponies, deer, sheep and even ostriches roamed freely and seemed to be well behaved unlike ostriches I encountered in other zoos. There are two man made structures that grab your attention inside Baluarte. First would be the brachiosaurus mom and juvenile that lay near road going up to the big cat den. Second was the Golden tree sitting a top of an unfinished high rise building that was visible from the outskirts of town. The carriage man told me the building was a going to be a casino.
Other facilities that the visitors seemed to enjoy were the Butterfly garden and picnic grounds. I clambered up the hill towards the units of the Lions and Tigers, but they weren’t as generous to families who wanted them to pose for some pictures. I guess they were the ones who were fed first and were just eager to take their after-lunch nap. In the heat of the mid day sun and having traveled all night and sightsee all morning I envied the sleeping cats and just wanted to roll down the hill on my belly as my feet were killing me already. I looked at the mommy Brachiosaurus as I passed her and crept after the grass eaters who startled easily for some parting shots with the slide film I reloaded with. I was getting cranky and thought about the first tiger I saw. I dropped by his cage again and true enough he was gnawing something the feeder had just dropped off. It was time for me to find a meal of my own.
