In my previous post about zip lining, I mentioned Diamante Adventure Park, and how we chose not to go zip lining there. However, this park has a number of different activities, and we did visit the animal sanctuary, which was well worth it! The sanctuary is the largest in the area, and all of the animals have been rescued by the Costa Rican Ministry of Wildlife. Now, enough with the words, on with the pictures.
There was a variety pack of frogs and pretty flowers. And a bunch of reptiles, but they didn’t photograph well in their tanks.
A howler monkey feeling the heat.
Turtles, iguanas, and large, toothy iguanas (right?).
Sloths! So lazy they wouldn’t even eat at feeding time, when the keeper was hand feeding them (Jack the Dog must be part sloth…).
There were many butterflies. Here are two.
And beautiful toucans.
And last but not least, there were 4 types of jungle cats. I was only able to capture two decently, since they were behind glass.
