The Greenville Zoo

The Greenville Zoo, in upstate South Carolina, is a typical mid-size zoo from a small city, with a small budget. It did have a few species that I had never seen before. Alas, like most small zoos, it uses wire-mesh enclosures, which are inexpensive to put up and maintain, but are not very photographer-friendly.

Here are some shots from a recent visit.
