Zoobic Safari, Subic Bay Freeport Zone

Exploring Zoobic Safari!! 
          I joined for the second time an international conventional of metallurgical engineers held at Subic Bay Freeport Zone last October, 2011. I was so overjoyed when I met my college classmates, college professors and I even met new metallurgical engineers. Now, to cut the story short, we had our teambuilding at Zoobic Safari on our last day.
           I am going to show you loads and loads of photos of big and small animals inside the zoo. So, fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride!

The first stop after the entrance was the Bird Walk. In here you will see different kinds of birds with lovely colors.

Our next stop was the Bird Thrill.

In this picture, the visitors must be inside the cage which is ironic. However, you should not stay longer inside the cage or else you will be bathed with bird manure..eewww!

Wait a minute, was this monkey caged inside the Bird Thrill?

Like the visitors, this small, black monkey was also curious with the people who were busy taking pictures of him and the rest of the animals

Welcome to the Rodent World. I really don't like rodents, mouse and the like. But this time, I have to say "hi" and "hello" to them, or else I can not proceed to the next part of the zoo. You will see an array of cages of different types of rodents.

I was in awe when I saw these camels for the first time. They were really big, tall and yet gentle creatures. I even fed them with their favorite grasses..yehey!!

Friends and I were resting at the safari vehicle. This vehicle will take visitors to the deeper part of the zoo to visit park's caves and to catch sight of some animals.

Our next stop was the Forbidden Cave. Inside are some of real stuffed animals and a hanging bridge.

Welcome to Tiger Safari!! This time, we got to experience a close encounter with the jungle beasts. A local aeta was assigned to ride with us with that safari orange jeep (behind us), so he can demonstrate to us the feeding of the bengal, hungry tigers roaming around that particular area.

Warning: Only the Aeta is allowed to feed the tigers!

Now, stepping in to the Close Encounter!! Everyone was quite hesitant to see these tigers and lions, except me!

Animal bones and preserved skins are displayed here in the Animal MuZOOeum.

This used to be a place where American Navies stored their guns and heavy weapons. Now, an Animal MuZOOeum!

This time there were no animals, just humans. Aeta's Trail showed us the lifestyle and the daily activities of the local aetas.

Our last destination is the Croco Loco. Again, this is used to be the hiding place of the Navies, now converted into a Croco Cafe.

It was all worth with. We arrived at the zoo around 10 am and finished around 12 noon. Under the heat of the sun and dusty morning we were able to tour around the Subic's major habitats of the various exotic animals. Truly, it was fulfilling to see some of the endangered species in the planet, especially the tigers. So, let's protect them!

More fun in the Philippines! Until next time!
