From tigers and bears to wildebeest and some frisky zebras getting busy (not displayed for obvious reasons), here are a few more photographs from my time at Kolmården Animal Park (Djurpark).

Facing Sharks at Tropicarium

Visiting a Children’s Farm in Kolmården

On our way back from Norrköping, we decided to finally check out Kolmården – Scandinavia’s largest wildlife park. While there, I stopped by the children’s farm (usually called a petting zoo in the US), and got to watch kids chase after little pigs and/or run away from heavily feathered chickens called Silkies.

Over the next three posts (including this one), I’ll be sharing some of my favorite shots from the park.
