Close up of an African Zebra taken at Buenos Aires Zoo.
Probably one of the most interactive and best kept zoos I have ever visited. Animals are looked after quite well, and are being raised in captivity to save them from extinction. The zoo allows a percentage of their profits for conservation of the Argentinian wildlife.
While I’m not sure I agree with animals being caged for any reason, it is nice to know that this zoo is here for many reasons, including conservation.
Cropped original image and increased the contrast and brightness slightly.
Many thanks to Shelly Heibert for creative help with the title for this one!
