Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! Our 3rd day continues! May 28, 2016

After finishing up at the Hellbrunn Palace, we continued on to the Salzburg Zoo.  This was at the same stop we got off of our Hop on Hop off Bus, and also one of the admissions we could use with our Salzburg Card! 

By looking at the map at the entrance, the zoo didn't seem to be very large, but once we started walking through, it just kept on going! It was a big, full blown zoo!  It was very nice and many of the animals exhibits were built into the side of a mountain giving them quite a large, natural area to roam around in. Below are just some of the many, many pictures of some of the animals that were there!

There were some animals you wouldn't necessarily expect to see at a zoo, including a cute little mouse, in his mouse house!  

There were some field mice too in there little field grass exhibit

And a very cool insect exhibit too!

I'm not sure I've ever seen guinea pigs at a zoo, but these guys seemed pretty happy to be there!

The setting for this zoo was unbelievably beautiful!

This guy was just begging us to take his picture!

And while it's hard to pick a favorite, because all of these animals are just adorable, these little red pandas are a real hit!

We spent about 3 hours at the zoo, and between our time there and the palace we thoroughly enjoyed our day!  We caught the bus back to Salzburg and had a fantastic pizza dinner.  Afterwards we stopped at a little grocery store for some water and candy for Alex. 

Another successful day in Austria!
