Guide with capuchan monkeys
The St. Maarten Park has a focus on the Caribbean and American Tropics. It is the largest zoo in the Caribbean They have over 80 species including the largest display of exotic parrots in the Caribbean. In addition to the birds and various kinds of monkeys there are also Ocelots, Bush Dogs (Bob's photo), Golden Lion Tamarins and Capybarras. And it doesn't stop there. They also have tropical plants such as Bougainvillea, Allamanda, Oleander, Ixoria, the Flamboyant, Sea Grape, Cordia and Yellow Poui. Some additional pictures are in the afternoon travelogue titled Natural Wonders and the Zoo The pictures there include the blue macaw, a toucan, a green iguana and a scarlett ibis.
We were taken on a tour of the various animal cages, and also visited the Bat Cave (with the fruit eating bats which were behind a glass barrier). In addition to the Capuchan monkeys (pictured with the guide) and the Bush Dog, other pictures on this tip include the red footed tortoise (and baby), a sleeping racoon, and the East African Masked Lovebirds.
