  • MAGIC! Here's the word that would sum up our day in this park. We had taken a PASS keeper hoping to approach the animals and feed them. What we lived to far exceeded what we expected. Lucile, our careful host, greeted us with a big smile and directly put us at ease. We learned a lot about animals through his explanations and she knew we communicate and share his passion. Many thanks to her for having achieve one of my dreams: approaching the fennecs of any loan (I still have tears in my eyes thinking about nothing: D). Could put themselves in the shoes of real healers by an exercise in preparation to the animal care: it was really great. All the moments spent with animals were splendid: be it the slime of the giraffe, red pandas and their cute little heads, lemurs who took us to the trees, the contact with the snakes, penguins, (who aren't penguins right: D) and many others. Unfortunately, we can't mention all the good times we had during this day, nobody would read a comment of 300 pages. This Wednesday will remain engraved in my memory, I've lived a fairy in the Disney, a dream account. We leave again full of stars in my eyes and heart. Thank you to Jurques, which is really great zoo STAFF and especially to Lucile which has accompanied us throughout the day. (and thanks again for the fennecs hihi)

  • 9 h 00: opening of the gates anything for us, Lucile welcomes us and gives us our "healers pass" with a quick explanation of the course of the day and a signature for administrative (good lion eat us!). Immediately the current flows, and the visit begins (youpiiiiiiii) by the red panda, we learn a lot on these small animals and despite a slight frustration of not being able to fondle them we are super happy to find us a few centimetres of them. We then go to the giraffes then parrots or honey and me fall back in love with cockatoos caicco (soon a new friend to play at home). We then go to small animals a little less cute, but I'll give a little blur to disclose everything. Lucile having of course early in the visit that Darling had a love to the fennecs it replaces the visit a small monkey with a visit at the fennecs and meerkats, mean you that she realized a dream by simply turning a key in a lock (a true magician). Move in all directions we see a few small pieces of animals walking activity to another without too watch there to keep for later. Zou continues, a little quick preparation of a snack for us friends lemurs and we're heading to their enclosure (note this isn't Madagascar Lucile NO NO NO to the great never has ^^) and the meet "attacked" by all these little balls of fur with in premiums explanations yet detailed about their way of life plan etc. I can assure you that on all our careful Lucile said at no time we haven't won so she talks about love, and love for all residents she has it in spades. From there we continued toward the penguins ^^ aren't penguins (remember that). We then stayed all the afternoon for REnourrir lemurs, see wolves be fed but ESPECIALLY to attend the meal of the LION and the two lionesses, and believe me you can be a proud guy who're afraid of not great thing, find a cute lion through the glass of the zoo and almost wanting to hug him , ONCE THE DOOR PAST WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF IN FRONT OF HIM SEPARATED BY A SIMPLE GRID AND HE GETS A ROAR YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT THE BEAUTIFUL PLUSH GIANT YOU SEE BUT A MAJESTIC PREDATOR AND YOU ARE AN APÉRICUBE FOR HIM. Finally, I'm closing this comment with a mega thanks to Lucile, a careful/facilitator/teacher in gold that will talk you about his job / passion with immeasurable love and turned this pass beautiful healer in an EXCEPTIONAL experience that will NEVER fade from our memories. I can tell you that after one such day dreams are wonderful. Thanks also to the Jurques Zoo / commercial/facilitator replacing ^^ / and to all people present on the site, you are fantastic continue thus for sale dream.
