We visited Chester Zoo on our way home from Wales as none of us had been there before. We were very impressed. Opened in 1931 it’s one of the UK’s largest zoos and therefore does take a long time to go around and see everything, which is usually our general aim when we visit anything animal related. We saw some old favourites but also animals and birds we’d not seen before. One of my favourites was the jaguar, who just came into view as I was walking around the corner.
I also loved the tiger, which we were fortunate enough to see being fed and launching itself up to grab its food from a tall pole.
Other favourites included the sloth – which did not live up to its name, moving around its home incredibly quickly,
the cheetahs, one of my absolute favourite animals,
and the giant anteater.
