Nature Notes: Schwarze Berge

Photobucket
This Sunday the snow was fresh and the sun was shining, so we decided to take a trip to the Wildpark Schwarze Berge, a zoo near Hamburg that keep animals native to Europe in huge enclosures.

We got to see wild boars

That sounds like a great place - and how beautiful to see it in the snow!

The animals look content and - quite rightly - very wild!

Thank you so much for joining into Nature Notes!!! I love a zoo that has large spaces for the animals as I hate to see them in cages. Our local Buffalo New York zoo is trying to improve, but I think some the enclosures are still too small...Love the cat...there is something about cats...I will have to write a post in the future about my daughter's very dear ratty pets...

Lovely photos of the animals and lovely wintry scenery. I have just talked to my niece in Germany. She lives the Baden-Wurtemburg area. Not sure if I have spelled that correctly.

I am still oohing and aahing over the European native animals so very dear to my hear. The bear is like out of one of my childhood storybooks. Wild pigs too have been part of my life since I was four years old and the wolf is my totem animal.

I was so thrilled by your post! Thank you.

The lynx and bear appear to be posing for you. This appears to be a zoo that gives its animals plenty of space.
