Chester Zoo

I was very spoilt for my birthday because along with a wonderful meal and lovely presents, Sam also took me to Chester Zoo! I have wanted to go here for ages as I've never been before and I'm the biggest animal lover.

For those who have never been to Chester Zoo and maybe feel a bit skeptical of zoo's, don't be! This Zoo is huge and it took us all day to get around it. All the enclosures were giant and clean, the animals had plenty of space. Outside of each enclosure they also wrote about how endangered or vulnerable each animal was, showing their conservation efforts. There were also lots of signs around the park telling how much they raise and how much goes into conservation. There were plenty of talks around the zoo as well so that you could hear about the effort they go to to try and save species of animals. 

It was an absolutely lovely day and the weather was perfect for it. I loved seeing all the different animals and I can't thank my lovely Sam for spoiling me as much as he has for my birthday. I know I will be visiting the zoo again because I didn't get a chance to see the new tiger enclosure.

I'd say my favourite animals were the Chimpanzees and the Jaguars. The jaguars are such interesting animals and they came right up to the glass and even play-fight like real cats would. The chimps were just insane and they were separated because they were introducing new ones so they kept banging on the metal. It was funny and you could see that the keepers were trying to show the audience that this was normal, especially when they were chasing each other. This was to show dominance apparently. 

My lovely Samuel also bought me a cute little rhino teddy and a funny flamingo mug (which is seriously hard to hold) and I thought they were a perfect reminder of my perfect day!

P.S Baby meerkats are the cutest thing I have ever seen.

Til' next time! XOXO
