I visit various ZOOs to take many pictures of interesting animals: in my gallery, you can find mostly wolves, foxes, big cats and marine mammals, but also some other creatures which deserve attention :nod: I am also trying to bring you information about animals to share the knowledge :D

Welcome to my gallery, dear visitor! :hug:

My dream came true! Photos!

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 8, 2015, 3:02 PM


Hi Pals!

Finally at least something in my life (apart of job) went right – for years and years and years I kept saving money from prints I’ve sold here on DA and bucks some of you sent me as a contribution after using my art as a reference.  I longed to go for a trip to Duisburg in Germany and Harderwijk in Netherlands to take photos of rarely kept cetaceans and some pinnipeds. I especially hoped to see Baby the river dolphin once more before he dies as he is incredibly old, being the last of its kind to be kept in Europe.

For several years I hoped it would work but finally did not – but this Friday I really started my journey, spent whole night in the bus just to get to Duisburg. I’ve met there with Lunchi, RobindV and her nice boyfriend. We enjoyed whole day with Baby the river dolphin, local bottlenose dolphins and baby harbour seals and sea lion pups! :la:

We then moved to Netherland where we visited Harderwijk next day. It is very modern but rather small sea park that keeps many species of marine mammals: dolphins, walruses, harbour and grey seals, Steller sea lions (those creatures are ENORMOUS!!!), Californian sea lions and… harbour PORPOISES! You can not even imagine how cute those tiny fat creatures are! I wanted to visit them so badly and it was amazing when it finally happened. Zoos and parks are usually not allowed to keep this species, but Harderwijk is a rescue station for marine mammals in troubles – in Netherland porpoises often beach and die. Harderwijk’s managed to rescue many of them, doing its best to return them to nature. However some would not survive in the wild and must be kept in captivity to live, so that’s why you can see them in this facility ;) All animals are kept in very nice, sometime even fantastic (for example bottlenose dolphins inhabit huge lagoon with natural water) habitats.

On Monday it was zoo Burgers, one of the most beautiful animal parks in this country. A huge pavilion which combined desert area, jungle and ocean aquarium was incredible wonderful and spacious! I only had very bad luck because until 2014 it kept a Swift fox (vulpes velox), the last fox in European zoos I miss in my photo collection :( well, Rotterdam keeps them now, so maybe in future… ;) but they still keep ringed seals, other species which was brand new for me.

And the last day it was Duisburg again! I spent hours with my beloved Baby, had one last and fast walk through the zoo to take photos of baby seal for you and then got back to Baby, said my farewell to him, because I will probably never see him again… and I rushed for tram, train and then it was a loooong night in a bus once more ;)

RobindV, thank you and Sander for letting me stay, driving me to zoos and parks and for being very nice to me, allowing me to make my long time dream come true! :hug: Lunchi, thank you for you lovely company, it was a pleasure to see you again :hug:

I really needed something to go right, so thank you! :happycry:

Dear watchers, I took many photos of exhibits with my cell phone, should I make series of reports so you can see those facilities? I ask because it would be a LOOOOT of work – I will do that in pleasure if you are interested ;)

Hello, Woxys! :furryhappy: 

I just want to say thank you for all those amazing photos you are taking. I`m following you for several years (this acc is not my first) and your gallery is one of the best I know. My spirits rising when I see you posted something new. Sure, my beloved photos are with foxes because I love those animals so much. So, your gallery is like a godsend for me.

And, good luck to you and have a nice day! :fox:

Amazing work. Can I just fave all of it? XD But actually I had a question about how you got such awesomeness: Are you allowed in the enclosures or something? Is there some sort of special permission for that? Or are there just a lot more fenceless enclosures in European zoos?

(I ask because I love taking pictures of zoo animals but mine never turn out as clear as yours because of the fences or cloudy plexiglass. >.<)
