I remembered once when I was still on grade school that we went to Manila Zoo on a Field Trip. And here, I traveled again on another zoo in Rodriguez,Rizal after so many years.

Avilon Zoo

According to Ate Pearl our tour guide they have 3000 animals about 1300 species.

We bought the ticket at a discounted price online. You may visit their website at Avilon.com.ph under Special Offers tab

First, we went to the Cashier to give our voucher and they ask us if we want to get a tour guide. Tour Guide cost 400 pesos. He/She will tour you around 7.5 hectares zoo.

Here’s a tip..

1. You must eat before the tour starts. You are not allowed to eat while on tour. But you can bring water just make sure that you don’t feed or give it to the animals.
2. Bring extra shirt. Some places smell animal urine. But the place is clean.
3. Bring powerbank. We start the tour around 9AM and finished at 2PM. (Remember: you will tour around 7.5 hectares)
4. Wear comfortable shoes. Slippers and Sandals are allowed inside.
5. Enjoy!

After paying at the cashier. The guard will stamp you this cute paw print before you enter the vicinity.

She can smile, she can kiss you and she can also sleep on your lap too…

Photo Op with the Snake

Please note that every close encounter and picture taking with the zoolebrities will cost you 50.00 pesos

Hamsters and Rabbit

According to ate Pearl our tour guide most of the rabbit and hamsters are being fed by the snakes since the snake prefers eating them alive. I feel so sorry for these cute little fellas.

After the photo-op we headed to the reptile house. But as we move along we see this cute baby orangutan. He is Earth. He will be the successor of Trixie.

He ride bikes, he also shake hands with you and even hug you. We were very lucky to see Earth.

Reptile House
We are not allowed to take pictures inside the reptile house because the snakes eyes were too sensitive.

This picture is taken outside the reptile house. Since the snakes were too large enough it can’t fit on a small aquarium.

Turtles

According to ate Pearl. There will be a new animal joining them around 2017 to 2018.

And guess what is it? It’s an elephant. I will surely go back this place.

That’s it. You may visit them on your next free time. Hope you enjoy reading my blog.

Have a nice day.
