Wilhelma Zoo and Botanical Gardens/Stuttgart

Mac and I have been living in Stuttgart area now for almost 2 years.
We had heard about the Wilhema Zoo and Botanical gardens but,
had not bothered to go.  After our fantastic day out here, we wished we'd gone sooner.
The park is open 365 days a year and you'll find it at
Neckartalstr. 13
Neckartalstra├če 70342 Stuttgart, Baden-W├╝rttemberg

This is the only zoological botanical garden in all of Europe
and it is a MUST on your do to list in Germany.

Let me show you just a few of the highlights of our day here.
We loved the penguins.

My personal favorite are the monkeys!


Look at this extraordinary little fellow with his white beard and long brown tail.

Don't miss the insect house with it's collection of unusual
insects such as this one that looks like a dried leaf.



Our favorite butterfly in the Butterfly house.

The aquarium had some very strange

looking fish.

This is a Cardinal Shrimp from Indonesia.


Look at these amazing fish.  They swim vertically!

Of course, you'll also find big animals here.  Elephants, tigers
giraffes etc.

A collection of lizards.

and ssnnnnn-akes.




Don't miss the buildings that house the gardens
as they have animals inside too.








This was a wonderful day filled with fun seeing the beautiful flora and fauna.
The animals are so enjoyable to watch.
Mac says, "This place get's the thumbs up, bring your family because
there is something here for everyone."
