Half Day Trip to Taipei Zoo

The third day of Chinese New Year, we decided to visit the zoo. At present, Taipei Zoo is the largest zoo in Asia. I heard the design of the zoo is also same as in San Diego Zoo. It's about 165 hectares and 90 hectares are open for public. We didn't explore the entire 90 hectares, maybe I'll come and visit soome of the places I didn't see.

Since it's holiday that day and the weather was nice, I can't believed how much people were there. Nevertheless, I cartch a glimpse and captured some of the animals around the world.
This is Koala from Australia, one of my two favorites.
Luckily, it looked back when I'm taking photo.

These are Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan, the giant pandas from China.
 I love them!

Some penguins, I thought they're not real!

Here are some more I tried to focus from far away.

Here we are the St. Francis Church Family.

I specially like the penguins!
My post today was about the new year of the rabbit, by the way.

Oh, I do love the animals, Lani! And your photos are delightful! I'd like to hug that Koala! What a cute one he/she is! Hope you have a lovely week!
