Zoos in Holland

0

I really like zoos, so every now and than I visit one. In Holland we have different kinds of zoological gardens. Some of them are specialized in one species. Most of the zoos have a diversity of mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and shellfish. In Dutch we say “Dierentuin”. The care of the animals is extremely good and the animals have a lot of living space. Regularly there are born a lot of animals in our zoos.
