The last day of Saguenay was for the Centre d’observation de Falardeau. Its a observation centre for animals. They hold only a few of certain animals but they take very good care of them. Right when you go in to the reception hut, they have a bunch of baby animals there. You can pet some of them and some are in their cages depending on how interactive they are. I really wanted to get a chance to pet the tiger cubs but they already outgrew that stage so it was the first weekend where they were back to just viewing. But thats okay, I still got to pet baby kangaroos and baby raccoons. One day, I’ll get to those baby tigers and have a chance to pet them…one day, it’ll happen! 😉
There’s really nothing to say about this observation centre or we can even call it a zoo to a certain extent. Its amazing to see actually pretty happy animals (or at least they look that way) and healthy. They all look excited to see everyone thats there and they live in a fairly decent amount of space for them to roam around. It should give them a natural habitat sort of feeling. It was a very memorable experience.
Without saying anymore, here is a portion of the pictures that I took there. A lot were behind cages (like bears and tigers, etc) so I just gave up on showing those pictures because its not clear enough.
Saguenay has a lot of beautiful things to offer and this observation centre goes right along with everything else I’ve done here. They actually have another zoo that I went to last time in St. Felicien which is more of a zoo and bigger. Its also worth the visit and I invite you head over to check it out if you missed it back in 2012 right HERE! The most epic moment goes to my distant staredown with a wolverine.
I’m falling really behind with a bunch of this travel stuff. I still have stuff to post up from Hong Kong. Hopefully, I’ll manage to do some catching up and sharing a bit more of my travels this year throughout September 🙂
Have you gone on your vacation yet? Where did you go? Are you a fan of zoos? Which was your most memorable zoo visit?
