I have mixed feelings when I go to zoos. On the one hand, I'm in awe at the different kinds of animals there that I would never get to see in the wild if zoos didn't exist. On the other hand, those animals are meant to be free in their own habitats. The fact that we need zoos to protect some of those species is what makes me the saddest. Still, I took some pictures and got to enjoy a respite from the heat while walking around the Barranquilla Zoo this morning.
I love cats almost as much as I love dogs... And this kitten Ocelot is adorable. I almost want one, if it wouldn't turn out to be ferocious and eat our other pets.
