Close Encounters@Attica Zoological Park


The one and only such park in Greece. Almost every wild animal is here: Lions, tigers, monkeys, bears, girrafes, zebras, wolves, foxes etc. Here is also the biggest bird collection in the country. It's not like a zoo (cramped animals, tiny cages etc) but it's a whole big area with room for every species to feel as home as can be (although capture is capture).

I'm guessing that's not a live tiger? I'd love to have close encounter with one myself. The woman with the monkey - great photo. The mooo...entry is great fun. And the pigeon on the sun dial, great catch!
