He's always willing to pose for a photo for me.
Last time we went to the PV Zoo, it was a little depressing. The habitats were pretty bare-bones and the animals seemed lethargic and under-nourished. It was really nice this time around to see most of the habitats had been renovated to provide more space and more things to keep the animals interested. They were much more lively and interactive this time around, and quite a bit plumper! When you first arrive at the zoo, you have the option of buying a little snack pack for about $5 USD filled with fruits, vegetables, nuts, and pellets to feed to the animals. And pretty much all the animals are accessible for feeding - I even gave a carrot to a tiger, and pet its little paw! It made us feel a lot better about supporting the zoo and contributing to the local economy.
The ducks figured out the monkey strategy, though, and eventually came closer to us for some treats.
That last giraffe photo is one of my favorites from the trip. I just love the expression on his little face.
