Guatemalan park zoo La Aurora, is one of the biggest attractions of the city region. It has many species in a protected environment, from birds to leopards. There is even a little aquarium and a serpentarium.
The animals aren't in cages. They are in a simulated open field from their places of origin. There are specific view spots for us to watch them in a secure manner.
Im glad I took my 70-300mm lens for this trip. Most of the pictures here were taken with that lens.
Guatemala is a tropical country but in the zoo you can watch Humboldt penguins. The penguins have an estricted diet and controlled temperature water transparent tank.
The most recent attraction of the zoo: Yellow tail lemurs!
Tigers are like the bigger brothers of cats. I would like to go and hug them but only if they have ate their meal first.
