Baton Rouge Zoo

Like most small-city zoos with small-city budgets, the Baton Rouge Zoo is…well…small. But it is very nicely laid out and even had some species i had not seen before.

Some photos from a visit.

The zoo. It was overcast most of the day but didn’t rain. Nevertheless, the weather kept people away, and I practically had the whole zoo to myself.
