St. Maarten Zoo

The second day Irene was here on the island visiting, we checked out the St. Maarten Zoo, and we absolutely loved it. The St. Maarten Zoo is small, but cute, and has a variety of animals from around the world, including parrots, capybara, ostrich, monkeys, bats, and reptiles. There is even a petting zoo with goats and rabbits. Iguanas, chickens, and peacocks roam free in the zoo. The coolest thing about the zoo, however, is that you can buy a bag of peanuts to feed the animals with, letting you interact and get really close to the animals. This is something that most US zoos will probably not allow. Irene and I had a great time at the St. Maarten Zoo.
