On Friday I took the number 5 train to the Nou d’ Octobre area of the city. I wonder what happened on the ninth of October for them to name an neighborhood (or at least a metro station) that. Anyway, the point of the subway ride was to get to the Bioparc, Valencia’s zoo.
Valencia’s zoo is less about cages and more about open space for the animals to roam. Despite this, of course, they are still in captivity. The zoo has two parts, an Madagascar species zone and, the remainder, an area for species from the continent of Africa.
I’m not sure if it was worth the 21€, because I found myself questioning whether I had seen the whole zoo once I got back to where I started. But, according the map and the animal silhouettes on it, I saw all there was to be seen.

I think he/she was eating some kind of melon, not cheese puffs.
