    Hi everyone ! I'm very pleased to be back on this forum that is extremely interesting ! I choose Emperor Penguin, because I love Antarctica and those animals, particularly. I'm currently living in Paris, I'm French, and I know very well the European zoos.

    Since now, I've had the pleasure to visit 60 different parks, mostly in Europe like Arnhem, Zürich, Duisburg, Köln, Leipzig, Munich, Basel and many others, but also some parks in Florida and in Singapore.
    My favorite zoo is ZooParc de Beauval in France. I have a very special relationship with this zoo that I visit very often since 2012. Really, it's my favorite, and I'm extremely close to it. It's even one of my most favorite places in the world. Otherwise, my second favorite zoo is Burger's zoo in Arnhem, Netherlands, that I love. I was extremely impressed by the quality of the exhibits when I first visited it in summer 2017, and I've been very pleased to re-visit it, the 12th of July 2017 (for the opening of the Mangrove), and in July 2019. And the third favorite is Apenheul, that is extraordinary. I visited it last summer.

    I love to design my own parks and exhibits. With the animals, I know better than the others, the apes, elephants and dolphins.

    I travelled a lot, mostly in Europe (I love Germany, the Netherlands and ESPACIALLY Italy), but also in Singapore and Sri Lanka, where I discovered a lot of animals in the wild (elephants, sloth bears, langurs...).

    I can't wait to discuss with you about all those interesting subjects !

    Bon jour, good to have you back; there are not many French users on the site. My favorite zoo on earth is Le Parc Des Felins, which I have visited on the first four of my six European trips (on one trip I spent three and a half days there).

    And my favourite is Beauval, like @Emperor Penguin. However, I also love Parc des Felins and have visited around 9 times I think.
