Information from the zoo:

I did not see the Bandurria because the guide did not take us to see the bird. I couldn't appreciate its features and I wasn't able to collect more information of Bandurria. I just had to search information from the internet. I would have liked to see it alive.

Experience at the zoo:

My experience at the zoo was emotive, because it was very big, and there were several kinds of animals, different species, example: fish, bird , tigers, monkeys, etc.... An educational farm, aviary, a place for lunch, gift shop, etc...

I could touch and feed them, but only the less dangerous ones. I appreciated that they were in good conditions and they all had the necessary to make them feel in their original habitat. The guide facts in detail which helped to understand animals' behaviour and main characteristics.

In general it was very fun.
