One rainy day of August I roamed Subic with other bloggers and we had an awesome adventure at Zoobic Safari. The last time I visited a zoo was when I was still a kid. That was a loooong time ago.HAHA! We were supposed to go to a beach but because it was really pouring hard, we found ourselves at this zoo.
Prior to entering the areas where the animals are, we were first given an orientation by our tour guide. It was raining so we only have a few attractions to experience that day — the Serpentarium, Tiger Safari and Croco Loco. We were also treated to dances by the Aetas.
Then we proceeded to a cave where snakes and other reptiles are housed — the Serpentarium. It was dark inside and the only source of light are those that lit the animal’s habitat. It was kinda warm too although there are industrial fans blowing the wind away. Because I was sweating, I missed the opportunity of holding an Albino Python. I was quite concerned that the snake would react as it slide on my arms. Too bad. 🙁
Then we went out to ride the Zooper Train which took us around Zoobic to our destinations.
I was hoping to take on the zip line of Sky Safari, but it was raining. We simply passed by it and the Butterfly Garden.
We had a close encounter with Bengal and and Siberian Tigers. Then we had our Tiger Safari Ride and fed a tiger. You have to pay for the chicken that will be fed though, at P200 I think.
