Do you know what this animal is?
That is a Capybara. And would you believe it if I said that this creature is a rodent? Well, that is exactly what it is. The Capybara is also the largest rodent on the face of the earth. A board at Happy Hollow Zoo said the Capybara is found in the northeastern parts of South America.
This is what I loved about the Happy Hollow Zoo; they may not have a whole lot of animals like other zoos, but what they have here are some exotic animals. And so a trip to Happy Hollow Park and Zoo is definitely different from going to just about any regular zoo.
Another animal that I saw for the first time was this:
Talking of the cat family, we also saw this beautiful sight - a simply-beautiful spotted jaguar. What a beauty!
The other animals that get a lot of attention here are the meerkats and the monkeys.
These small animals that can stand on their hind legs for a long time look like curious and attentive animals. If you want to watch a group of Meerkats, Happy Hollow Zoo in San Jose is the place.

I recommend Happy Hollow Park and Zoo once again. :)
