And where exactly is this local zoo?
The photos are from "Kristiansand Dyrepark" in the southern part of Norway. http://www.dyreparken.no
It is a really nice zoo, and just a 35 minute drive from where I live. I often go there with the wife as an alternative to going for a walk somewhere else. Even after 30+ visits over the last few years there is still something interesting to see every time.
Edit: I also got some more Zoo shots at http://www.500px.com/lars5
if you want to take a look.
