Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
Although the two domes of Africa and Asia are smaller than the one of South-America, you can still discover a lot of interesting animals and have a lot of fun. Here also, you walk around in a rainforest.
We started in the dome of Africa, which is the home of the Colobus monkeys, parrots and other birds and the Aardvark (also called hog). This last animal is housed in a cave, which he shares with giant rats and … bats. Yes, bats again. And here their freedom is not restricted to a cave, but to the whole dome! You see them flying everywhere, together with the brightly colored parrots.
Another fun thing to do in this dome is to walk on a footpath, where you can cross a stream via stepping stones. In the stream itself, you can see all kinds of tropical fish. I tried to take a picture of this footpath, but since I was afraid to lose my balance, I didn’t do it.
In the last dome, you can see amongst others gibbons, otters, turtles, a Komodo dragon and Flying Foxes. Yes, another species of bats again… My favorite spot was the snake temple. Here you can touch pythons, spiders, toads and geckos; the biggest pythons are behind glass though. I would have liked to spend more time here, but The Viking seemed to be in a hurry. I guess snakes are not his favorite animals…
We had a lot of fun in Randers Rainforest and it has actually been an eye-opener. The Viking and I have learned that we don’t have to stick to beautiful landscapes and museums to have fun. This has really opened the door for us for new experiences!
