This is part II of “Grateful… blissful… serene… TYG!!!” as I promised to talk about the Animal Farm.
One of the exclusive amenities when staying at Tagaytay Highlands is being able to check out their Animal Farm. It is a petting zoo and home to miniature animals from different parts of the world. This mini-Zoo has a lot of healthy, well-cared animals! It has a well-manicured garden with a variety of flora and fauna. The caretakers are very kind and accommodating and will entertain any questions you may have.
I managed to pet a huge snake (see right side of photo collage), which I think is an adult reticulated phython (approx. 10 ft. +/-) and have a big snake ( 5 ft. +/-) wrapped over my shoulders like a shawl. LOL I was able to feed a large cockatoo, a parrot and a blue and gold Macaw (see top photos) in my hand while they were resting on my arm. All these things used to terrify me to death (still scares me)… but I did it! Woooot!!!
We also fed their Orangutan named Chino and he was a big show-off. After meeting Chino, we were introduced to their new resident baby tiger named Digong (named after the new Philippine president). I have to say that their zookeepers/caretakers, Renato and Rodeo, were extremely nice, very knowledgeable and accommodating. I wouldn’t have done those things that I didn’t normally do if they weren’t so patient and supportive. Also, I saw how kind and caring they were to the animals and I was very impressed.
We had an awesome time! Hope you guys can also check it out.
I’ll try to post some photos here or provide a link to my review on trip advisor.
I just found a video on youtube… check it out.
