Zoo: PENN'S CAVE, PENNSYLVANIA
15th August 2007: Visit at Penn's Cave
On our last day we went to Penn's Cave. The park had two parts. The first part was a boat trip through the limestone cave with stalactites and stalagmites which gives the park its name. The underground sea was pretty small at some places while at others it was very wide. Different parts of the cave were illuminated to show the special formations of the stone. And apart from that the tour guide had a hand lamp to illuminate other formations as well.
After the boat trip we went on a bus to drive through the park where the animals were. We saw bisons, elk, deer, longhorns, wolves, black bears and bobcats. At the end of the tour we went into an exhibition of stuffed animals from Africa. An explanation on tape told us about the lives of those animals.
