    Not a too big enclosure , but what a surrounding. You can watch the african elephants walk between (the well protected trees).

    Do you know the difference between an african and an indian elephant?
    For starters Africans have much larger ears. African both male and female have tusks - indian only male elephants.
    They have different numbers of toes.

    In cologne - keulen they have both species , both very old. Interesting to see.

    Sometimes an animal caught your attention , even when it is one where your not normally interested in.

    Well Le fleche for instance has put a couple of gibbons together with giant turtles. They sometimes interact.

    Or what about the lemur katta...these magnificent animals are alowed to walk freely trough the park.
    Unexpected encounters. When your silent you can get really close.

    The zoo has opened in the year 1946 and is therefore the most ancient private zoo in France.
    The zoo contains 1200 animals , from small ones till really big inhabitants. The zoo also has much attention on vegetation.
    It is 14 hectares large and they surprise the zoo visitors every year with a new attraction.

    In my humble opinion this is the nicest polar bearenclosure I have ever seen (ouwehands is nice too). There are still zoos who keep their bears in concrete jungles. Not so in La fleche. A large spacious enclosure with a watterfall , much sand and green. You will have to make an effort to find the icebear in one of the pictures.
