The 29 acre Belize Zoo is home to 45 species of native Belize animals that were once used for a documentary about tropical forest. It is located in the tropical savanna that is quite literally in the middle of no and where. BUG SPRAY is a must!
|This Tapir doesn’t seem like much of a threat.|
|I had a staring competition with a toucan..|
|..and he won.|
The howler monkeys can be heard throughout the zoo but don’t want to be seen.
|Oh, there’s one!|
|This tree is full of howler monkeys, I promise.|
|More howlers.. somewhere up there.|
|A random Puma appears.|
|The majestic jaguar pacing the fence.|
As we were leaving the zoo we found a local checking out the bike.
|“Who’s a pretty bird?”|
