Parc Zoològic is a zoo located in Barcelonas's Parc de la Ciutadella. The zoo's installations branch out from a central fountain of a lady holding a parasol. I enjoyed the pleasantly warm summer afternoon by watching the animals, of which my favorite were the flamingoes and the Komodo dragons.

The oddest animal I encountered at Parc Zoològic was the muntjac, a deer from Pacific Asia. Its antlers were small and knobbly, so they looked like two grey thumbs.

The lemurs were the most entertaining, since they jumped back and forth in their installation as they fed on fruits, scratched itches, and chased each other around. Most of the other animals were enjoying a good afternoon siesta instead.

There were plenty of pavoreales, or peafowls, strutting about the zoo. The males kept showing off their bright feathers. Some peafowls snuck onto the animal installations while their inhabitants were out of view. Maybe some visitors left confused due to the avian complexion of the tapirs.
