    Hello,

    I have just found this forum, and I have realized there's one zoo missing, or half missing from the Hungary section: it's Magán Zoo Felsőlajos. It has been mentioned here before as Magán Zoo Abony - the zoo moved a couple of years ago, and now it's in Felsőlajos.

    It's a private zoo with a lot of tigers and lions. It's a really special place where the animals are loved and happy, I mean, really. Tigers and lions are playful, if you run in front of them, they run with you.

    So there are 8 lions, 3 of them white and 8 tigers, 4 of them white. The original white tiger couple had 4 babies last spring, 2 of them stayed in the zoo, one of them full white, without stripes. They had another two babies in the autmn, one of them also completely white without stripes, but they did not remain in the zoo.

    There's a Siberian tiger couple, and their two babies, born in November.

    Apart from the tigers and lions, there are
    - a Canadian lynx couple
    - Scottish beef
    - fennec
    - zebra
    - lemurs
    - hamadryas
    - camel, llama
    - meerkat
    - porcupine
    - watushi
    - coati
    - horses, goats, donkeys

    It's a small zoo but worth visiting if you are in the area, because it has a great atmosphere.
