What a marvellous portal! Puts our dismal zoological gardens to shame.

Fine post.
How lucky you're, I was unable to find any zoo in my village so I made my post about the zoom of my camera.

La villa Borghese...un endroit magique , comme tant de lieux et de musées à Rome et en Italie..
Je ne connaissais pas cette entrée vers le zoo: c'est une photo vivante et colorée!

That 'gatehouse' is bigger than some people's living accommodation! Quite magnificent!
