  • Pan kun the chimpanzee, has held that he was raised in hand of beings humans and benefited so much at the zoo as attraction in a little saynettes funny and inventive and so touching, not counting with alongside the James dog, should be given with his partner of better living conditions with a larger playground and touch screens to watch the video of when he was a child in the middle of beings humans photographs of that era, have a new little dog bull dog English to stimulate its affect and participate in its serenity, and provide food for humans which he had taste - see with its 2 'fathers' adoptive, of cakes like the one on the anniversary of the little girl (episode 3-2-5), etc. He could have a bed or a good mattress with a duvet, what a good healer spends time with him and varies the interactions, him what movies or images on Washoe and other chimps, that we stop "fuck her over" from her father's clothes Christmas etc. Thanks to all his fans who Pan kun was able to transmit so strong affection and share joy.

And have a good laugh tease feeding bears to cute little bear hug, and variety shows are hand-packed in a how impressive and! It is also pricing and no extra charge except for baby bear hug that Nice. Want to feed (lol) also bear eating a decent meal!

  • I went on a weekday, or fewer people and almost no events. Admission fees are high, but cat's rates. There's no. More than a decade ago was vibrant in the bear Park, but this time sorry. It is of course bear is cute. Holiday if you buy the meat food, the bear is delighted to have seen it during the week's bread. There's no.
