Default Europe's "Highest" Zoo

Last week my wife and I spent a nice afternoon at the highest zoo in Europe, the Alpenzoo (Alp Zoo), which is 750 m (~ 2.500 ft) above see level!!

There are only animals which life or used to life in the alps... really interesting! I hope you enjoy our shots... three of them are from my wife!

#1 - Waldrapp (European Ibis)



#2 - Braunbär (Brown Bear)



#3 - Kauz/Eule (Foly/Owl)... not sure about this guy^^



#4 - Steinadler (Golden Eagle)



#5 - Luchs (Lynx)

Very nice, Markus!

I remember the Alpenzoo above Innsbruck and I was very pleased to see this great shot of a Gams again.

A beautiful animal and so representative for the Tyrolean mountains!

Well framed as a picture and 'memory-lane' for me....


Thanks for sharing, Mr. and Mrs. Markus!

Walter... I knew you would remember the Alpenzoo and it's a pleasure for me to let you "drive on the memory-lane" a bit

This Gams is my favourite shot from the visit - she was standing on top of the rocks, watching all over Innsbruck... very beautiful animal!

Thank you so much for stopping by... beste Grüße nach Norwegen!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some nice words! Guess I had luck with #6 - a few seconds later she turned around and went down the rock she was standing on

BTW, looking forward seeing your animal shots

Thanks, hoping to get there in a few weeks time, not sure as things are crazy busy with planning a wedding. I know they are hard enough to do at the best of times, but in Egypt.... man!
