The Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden
The Manila Zoo is not particularly big, which is probably a good thing considering how hot it can get in Manila. It has the usual offerings you would expect in a zoo. Lot’s of bird life, parrots, eagles, doves and pigeons and the mandatory peacock flashing it’s brilliantly spectacular tail feathers for all to see.
As you first come into the Manila Zoo on the right hand side you will see the Indian Elephants, always a crowd pleaser. Moving further along there are reptile enclosures with pythons and an assortment of lizards. Towards the back of Manila Zoo are monkeys and other larger mammals.
On the left hand side as you enter, the Manila Zoo has set up a Kinder Zoo, which is an area for people, usually children to touch, feel and pat the animals. When I was there this was actually closed, not sure why. Further on there are an assortment of aviaries.
Manila Zoo has a land area of 5.5 hectares and has a current population of about 500 animals. There are 106 species, among which are 30 different kinds of mammals, 63 reptile species and 13 types of birds. In addition to popular zoo occupants such as elephant, tigers lions and the hippos, Manila Zoo also houses several endemic and indigenous species of animals like the bearcat, long-talied macaques and crocodiles. With a good mix of education and entertainment purposes, the Manila Zoo does its best to appeal to everyone.
