Title: My visit to Bristol Zoo - next best thing to walruses
Post by: kotu on January 28, 2017, 03:19:29 pm
Today I visited Bristol Zoo which is near where I live. Couldn't get many good videos but here are the ones I got.  (-_(//));

Seals, penguins, and, as a bonus, some Lemurs!

Since when does it not rain in UK? O.O

But more seriously, nice videos. :) By the way, did you know that in Quebec City, there's an aquarium that has five :walrii: ? Two were born last Spring.

DJ thx to climat change that famous english fog and rain is long gone. You nowerdays only see it in old english movies (black and white movies, yay)
The rainiest british city still got more sunhours per year than the sunniest german city... And germany is NOT known for bad weather  ;)

Awesome videos. I sure would feel a little akward if I stood next to lions, even if they're in the cage. It must be a cool experience nonetheless, plus they look awesome :)

We used to have a zoo in Quebec City, but it closed in 2006 D: (although we still have the Aquarium at least)

we should add a new forum rule for every member above 100 posts that forces them to provide walrus photos whenever they visit a zoo//aquarium :3

I should do the same some day...

I'm supposed to go there this spring or next fall but it will depend of other things. What I mentioned in safe-haven makes me think it will not be this spring. <_<

Do you live far in the South? I heard that the walruses in zoos in the South are pink because of the sun and heat
