    a different kind of zoo

    by uysijessa Written Sep 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    we read about paradise zoo while researching on things we can do in negros oriental and not having anything else to do on a saturday afternoon we headed in that direction. paradise zoo is located in one of the barangays in zamboangita. from dumaguete we took a jeep (P20/pax) and got down at the town proper of zamboangita and then rented a habal-habal that would take us to the zoo and back to town (P150).
    the zoo was spearheaded by the late Eleuterio Tropa, a former catholic priest who formed his own religious sect cum environmentalist group who called themselves “The Lamplighters”. it is also called Spaceship 2000 ET and is an extensive ipil-ipil forested area enclosed by a perimeter fence. for an entrance fee of P10 you can walk around the place and find birds of varied species and zoo animals such as a snake, a tiger, crocodile and some monkeys. there is also a museum inside that houses father tropa's memorabilia as well as stuffed wild animals. for a minimum fee (actually a donation) you can take a picture of a HUGE python wrapped around your shoulders which i found quite creepy actually.
    all in all i would say it isn't really a must to visit the place but if you're like us who haven't got anything else to do with some spare time you have you may want to visit the zoo just for the heck of it.

    he was trying to grab my hand! wayne with a huge stuffed orangutan steve where are you?!?!
