The Berlin Zoo is supposed to be one of the best in the world, so I figured I’d spend most of my last day in Berlin there. I went with my friend Wendy who I met at my hostel. It definitely would’ve been boring had I walked around the zoo all day by myself.
Look at this guy. Badass all the way!
Look at those eyes!!
In case you can’t tell this is a panda bear as relaxed as he could possibly get.
I think this was one of my favorites. At first I thought it was a cheetah, but then realized it was some type of leopard I believe.
Then we found a fun rope bridge to run across and almost fell into the stream.
When you thought you would only ever see kangaroos in Australia, guess again. You just have to come to the Berlin Zoo.
When we went into the penguin house, it reminded me of the Happy Feet Walk It Out video on YouTube (Jen!!!)
Next, Mr. Polar Bear.
My other favorite animal: the Bald Eagle!!
This was the first time I saw elephants up close and they were pretty funny. There were 4 or 5 adult elephants and one baby running around rolling in the hay. It was really funny to watch.
This next guy loved being in front of the camera and getting his picture taken. He even smiled for me once! I think he’s ready for Hollywood!
There was a room full of ropes and things for this next monkey to swing around and he went to town on them. He was doing all kinds of acrobatics for us. I think he was just trying to show off for the girl monkeys. I have a short video of this guy swinging around, but here’s a pic for now.
Last but not least I couldn’t have left without doing my photo-op with King Kong on the way out of the park. That completed the day.
