Visiting Boggart

Last weekend, I was able to return to the Cebu City Zoo with my family. We were so excited because of two reasons: 1) it was our first visit since the zoo’s management overhaul some months ago, and 2) because it was EA’s first zoo visit! EA, as you may already know, is my cousin’s young kid. Anyways, during the visit, I discovered something really  interesting. The new zoo manager, Giovanni Stephen Romarate, was, in fact, my second-degree cousin! Haha. So, instead of a short walk-through, we ended up with a guided tour with some insider/expert information about the zoo and the animals. Very nice! Hehehehe. Also, we were able to touch the resident superstar Boggart the Bengal Tiger. It was a great great visit! 🙂

This one is interesting. This is a 70-year old parrot. It is being watched closely because of its broken beak and falling feathers.
