When I was in Italy, I visited the Bioparco, Rome’s zoo. Why visit the zoo when there are so many great things to do in Rome? Well, I like zoos.
The Bioparco is located in the Villa Borghese, a large park area in Rome. In the Villa Borghese, it is in Piazzale del Giardino Zoologico. The park is pretty neat. I found one of the streets really interesting.
Fiorello La Guardia was the mayor of New York City during the Depression.
Here are photos of some of the animals I saw in the Rome Zoo:
This falcon was in the animal rehabilitation area. The photo was taken through a smal slot in a wooden fence.
I forget if this is a cow or a water buffalo.
Don’t forget to brush your teeth.
Overall, I had a good experience at the zoo. It wasn’t in the best shape; some signs were missing identification cards. I don’t mean to say that they were missing English identification cards; they were just missing identification cards. The animal quarters were not as good as most zoos I have seen in the United States. However, I may just be projecting human standards to animals–if the animals are happy, I don’t need to be.
There were no T-shirts for sale in the zoo; Italians tend not to wear T-shirts at all. Otherwise, I would have bought a T-shirt for my brother.
