The Naples Zoo is a typical small-city zoo with a small-city budget. The zoo began life back in the 60’s as a collection of “monkey islands” run by “Jungle Larry” as a tourist attraction. It was taken over by the city when the tourism industry dried up.
It did have a few species I had not seen before, but most of the enclosures are still wire cages, which are not very photographer-friendly. Where the Naples Zoo stands out, though, is the shows and keeper talks. You could spend an entire day just going from one show to another.
Here are some photos from a day at the Naples Zoo:
