What better way to take advantage of our first class-free Friday than to check out the BA Zoo?!
It was definitely a different experience than you’d expect at any zoo in the U.S. There were different types of birds & muskrat-type things running free all over the place.
We made an adorable duckling friend! He was a tough little guy.
We’ve been trying to figure out what these are for a while, too..
The main exhibits were smaller than all of us are used to, which was kind of sad to see for some of the bigger animals. The outer fences were a lot closer, though! All of the small children & their parents had buckets of animal food that they could put in little feed containers that were easily reachable from the animals’ cages.
We all agreed that it was a nice enough zoo, but just not what we’re used to seeing.
We’re all busy with homework today, but we’ll have a post up soon about some more cultural differences we’ve noticed including things we learned during our first week of real classes!
