Now these birds are a must-see item when at the zoo. If you can cath them at feeding time they never cease to amaze!
Category: Greater Vancouver Zoo
This zoo is actually located in Aldergrove, BC, which is about 40 minutes East of Vancouver. The zoo has the usual array of animals and exhibits and is well laid out. There’s even a train that you can ride around the park!
Buy your tickets fast….they sell out early!

I love trains and train stuff…can you tell?
Train runs pretty much all day long and costs $2 per ticket. it’s a great way to see the park on a hot or rainy day!
Yup, actual reindeer! Most likely Santa’s herd, on loan for the summer zoo season? ps…and no, he wasn’t there. There’s a pub in town so we’ll say he was ‘at the well’
Tall and spooky these things look like they could peck your eyeballs out!
Smokin fast horse-like animal with long slender horns….kinda neat.
This is the only exhibit that can be seen before you get inside. There are 4 or 5 sheep and you can get fairly close to them.
Usually rarely seen as they are underwater, this time round they were lazing in the sun close by!
Colorful and noisy, these birds really put on a show!
Nasty looking animal…what do these big birds actually do?
Now these birds are a must-see item when at the zoo. If you can catch them at feeding time they never cease to amaze!
Duck pond in March…..it seems to get better in the summer!
Friendly lil buggers these donkeys. Ever heard one brea close-up? It’s L-O-U-D!
Kids love the donkeys and the donkeys LOVE the kids!!
This sucker has to be 15 feet tall!
The buffalo normally are seen from a small bus that goes through the fenced areas but the zoo was performing renos while we were there.
There were 6 baboons in this cage, all the females were grooming the males! lol
2 hump camel
Ugly bugger but one of the first large animals you’ll see!
