Dje Nyima went for a hike.
August 4, 2020
The weather was super pleasant today and so we were with our grandchildren in the wildlife park in Hanau.Because of Corona, we unfortunately had to make a number of cuts here as well. Some stations are not accessible during this time and a few attractions do not take place at all. Too bad.At the zoo itself, one thing irritated me right at the beginning of our visit, with regard to animal welfare.Namely the overbuilt enclosure for polecat ferrets and foxes.The decoration in this building was probably more a gag than a species-appropriate set up.Although this term "species-appropriate" for caged animals is already a man-made joke and I, with my visit, also supported this nonsense. Ashes on my head.But that's another story.In the first enclosure, a stable was modeled with farm equipment, in the second an office room🤷 (Huh? What?) And the third with a pile of stones in a corner and a large dog box.Do you have to like that 🤷?My personal highlights, which were also spiced with a lot of pity for the caged and shy animals, were the white tundra wolves🐺, the pair of lynxes, as well as an attraction that did not belong to the inventory of the wildlife park, the caterpillar of the middle wine owl 🦋.The colorful drawing and especially the pseudo-eyes of this caterpillar look really great. The impressively large caterpillar later produces a butterfly that can have a wingspan of up to 6 cm. I found out from the Internet that this beautiful animal is very rarely seen. Allegedly, most likely if you look up found caterpillars yourself to the finished butterfly.Unfortunately, the time was too short for that today 🤷🤣🤣.For the granddaughter, however, only the playground (s) was mostly of interest. We also had a lot of fun here.So much fun that afterwards I was in a coma for an hour 🛏️😴😴😴 🤣 hahahaha.Was there anything I could take with me from today's tour? Yes I have.Yes, no, nothing physical now. Nothing zapzarap, as our old Pole used to say 🤣. Only intellectual property (does this term actually exist?) 😁.I have e.g. Never seen raccoons sleep in the canopy of cursed 😮 tall trees. I was really stunned today when I saw the two bears up there in the treetops. Well, bears stop 🤷😁.Why not. So sin'se 😁.What I would like to briefly throw into the room at this point ..... Raccoons are no dishware! 🤣🤣🤣.Would I go there again🤔? Probably not.I find the wilderness worlds more interesting and that, although until today I only knew uncool raccoons sleeping in houses 😁.Well, sometimes the wilderness isn't always authentic 🤷🤣. Without this visit to the zoo, I would have died stupid in the end.By the way, I saw my last raccoon sleeping in houses on my tour # 74 "Die Schlossermühle".Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of the guy.Here I would now like to appeal to your blind trust in me.Take care of yourself and best regards .... Bernd (-he at least tries not to die that stupid 🤣)And here is a third-party video of the Wolfsheulnacht in Hanau, from 2011.
Very well described and described. Yes, animals in the wild are really beautiful, but not everyone has something on their doorstep (like me!)For the (grandchildren) children the pheasant is still an experience, better than just from a book!
It is always a feast to read your reports and look at your pictures. Thank you for always sharing. 😊That with the animal parks and zoos is such a thing, animal welfare is also such a thing. Appropriate to species is almost only possible in the wild and here too more and more habitats are being destroyed by us humans. 😕The caterpillar is a splendid specimen 🐛🦋.
@ Pamz61I just saw your tour today, what can I say, if you haven't seen it, your mouth will stay open. All these animals and the environment ... just great.
That with the raccoons is awesome, I only know because I have been visiting the zoo for many years .. However, I also find that some animals are not particularly well accommodated, but there is still a lot of diligence on the part of the staff in the maintenance of the enclosure stuck.First of all I will google my knowledge about butterflies after animals, the thick caterpillar, thank you Bernd for your wonderful tour story
@The TanyaI am glad to hear that.Yes, these zoos ... you really don’t know how to position yourself.Although the correct answer is clearly on the table 🤷.Do we want to live in captivity? Not me.But maybe we can also enjoy it. The honks in the monkey house in Berlin are probably building something like that. But this topic is now going too far 😕😊.
@Aqua 🏊♀️Run MKYes, yes, there are really a lot of employees there.They are already modernizing a lot there. But there is still a lot to do there. Some signs are no longer correct or up-to-date. Animals that are listed on the boards no longer exist or have long since died. In the same way, some new animals have now moved in, which is not mentioned on the display boards. I just noticed the wolf enclosure because I was more interested in these animals there.To the flutter ...I had found an oschi like this a few years ago: search4life.de/wp1/nachtschwaermerBack then I was amazed at how I discovered this guy.
