Sikkim Flowers & Zoo 錫金花園和動物園


I caught a cold since coming here and felt pretty ill last night. Good that someone from Taiwan gave me some Chinese medicine stuff which to my surprise relieved a big part of the syndrome within one hour.


Then I finally found someone who also wants to go to the zoo, so we took off for a short excursion before lunch.

On our way, we also asked the taxi to stop by the Flower Exhibition Center. It is a rather small place so it only took us 15 minutes to browse through the site.

Then we went to the zoo.  The locals warned us that the enclosure here is rather big so often it is not easy to see the animals. Darjeeling zoo is more recommended, but somehow I just feel like seeing red pandas and snow leopards here.

Yet we were pretty lucky. The black bear literally sat right in front of where we stood. It is not giant, but a bit like a sitting hypo, plus it spent most of time gazing at the sky, as if it were contemplating on something very profound.

A leopard was also pretty engaging in his duty. It stayed right in front of the fence, showing us all sort of sleeping postures with snoring sounds.

Tibetan wolves also came out for the sun. Though they look more like dogs to me.

And we were lucky enough to see the snow leopard as some noisy Indian students in another side of the enclosure caused it coming towards us.

舔爪子的樣子,跟貓一樣。Licking claws like a big cat.

If I only see its face, I might think it were a tiger instead of leopard.
