Corbin’s “Top Ten Places You Should Visit This Summer” # 5

San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park located in the San Pasqual Valley inĀ San Diego, California makes Corbin’s “Top Ten Places You Should Visit This Summer” at #5. This 1,800 acre park is home to thousands of endangered and threatened species. Here I am feedingĀ an endangered Indian Rhinoceros!

Look at this breathtaking view of the park’s African Savannah! If you look closely you can see a Photo Caravan Safari. These behind-the-scenes tours get you up-close and personal with the park’s African and Asian animals. My pick would be the Asian Caravan (You get to feed the rhinos)!

What I love about the Wild Animal Park is that they are HUGE on using Animal Ambassadors. Throughout the day you will have a chance to meet cheetahs, kangaroos, an alligator, python…you name it!!! How neat!

Woohoo! Check out this beautiful Ornate Nile Monitor from Central Africa! You can tell the difference between the Ornate and the Common Niles by their strips and the color of their tongues: Ornates have pink tongues, Commons have blue tongues.

You have to love Indian Rhino lips! This was taken on an Asian Caravan Tour. What a sweet girl. Unfortunately these Indian Rhinos are disappearing in the wild due to poaching and habitat loss. The Wild Animal Park has the most successful rhino breeding program in the world.
