Good old Jungleland USA; it probably doesn't mean a thing to 99% of GDB's readers, but I have a soft spot in my heart for this charming little animal park (formerly located in beautiful Thousand Oaks, California).
I didn't remember that there were giraffes at Jungleland. Did you know that giraffes were originally called "cameleopards"? It's true! Ostriches were called "turkeysauruses". (I made that up). I like the detail of the waterfall cascading down the hillside.
This bear just loves to play in water. And on a hot day, I'm sure more than a few people wished they could jump in and join him. Don't do it, people from the past!
A variety of birds enjoy another pond - ducks, geese, flamingos, secretary birds (I think), all living together in peace and harmony. It's beautiful, man! I love the rustic look of Jungleland.
