  Entrance to Parc Zoologic
by seamandrew

The great zoo of Barcelona was founded in 1892 and remains as popluar as ever. Its most famous resident is the only albino gorilla in captivity. His name is Floquet de Neu (Snowflake), which of course is quite fitting. I did not get a good picture of him because he was resting in a pretty unpicturesque part. He was however really cute. One of a kind.

Other highlights at the zoo include dolphin shows and and killer whale show. The adventure playground seems like a great place for kids.

01Mar04: Sadly, Maurizioago just informed me that Snowflake died. I verified this on the zoo's webpage. He died on Nov 24th, 2003 because of complications with cancer. There is still much more to see, so please visit!
