    Over 30 minutes if there is exhibiting the crocodiles in the world. Because there is 1,500 yen for adults is convinced it is.

    植物の所で感動しました。色んな種類で、とてもすごい量で、すごく綺麗に育ってて、美しいと思いました。マナティーとインコはとても可愛かった。ワニでいろんな種類があって、健康で、とても良かったです。ワニはほとんど動かない動物ですので、「ワニが動かなかった!」や「ワニのショウが欲しい」の文句言っている人はワニの性格明らかに分かっていないでしょう。テレビ見すぎ。 又行ける時のはたのは楽しみです。 I thought that as a botanical garden, it was amazing. They had tons of tropical trees, and a lot of fruit trees, with different varieties of each species. The trees were exquisitely cared for and all of the orchids were flowering. I had never seen such well tended for plants in a botanical garden. Many of the trees looks like bonsai trees, because in the tropics they grow really big, so in order to keep them small for the greenhouse they shape them. I was really impressed with the garden. The alligators were also quite interesting. Alligators and crocodiles don't move much, but their life cycles and biology are fascinating. It's sad to hear people complain about the Park because the alligators didn't move much; they watch too much TV. This isn't animal planet. These are real alligators, they aren't going to be rushing around trying to attack everything they see. It doesn't work that way. In general they sit very still and wait for their prey to come. And that might be once every few days. They are relaxed, silent animals. The manatee was adorable. He came right up to my hand. He squeezed his eyes shut like he was trying to sniff through the glass with his big soft muzzle. Apparently he enjoys a good rub-down every week. It would be great if there was some way to touch him, like maybe a big round hole in the glass, some lettuce in a tray, and someone to keep watch, because I think both people and the manatee would enjoy it. I think chances like this for people to connect with animals at parks makes those visits more memorable. I look forward to the next time that I can go to the バナナワニ園.

    Vaguely to come after more than a year, but, would think that crocodiles were a huge dinosaur Magnitude can be seen at the Zoo. An unforgettable lifetime experience, 1500 Yen is cheap. Pleasant garden and laboratory of evaluation to move shuttle

    It was heaven for tropical plants, like me. You could see as good management, and plant. Though I think is ljuwbindai. I never saw the population ever had such large rhizomes. Really impressed. Staff were working gently and carefully. In the laboratory of evaluation of fruit parlor, I ate pine Board. It is good to eat papaya and banana grown in the garden. Went on a weekday, so very slowly. You want to come again.
