A Visit to Blijdorp Zoo, Rotterdam

On August 20, 2015, I went to Rotterdam Blijdorp Zoo! I’ve seen sea lions, penguins, okapis, prairie dogs, flamingos, butterflies, giraffes, hyenas, crocodiles, monkeys, all types of fish and birds and so on!
I took a bunch of pictures and I want to share some of my favorites.
