2020/02/20 Montreal's Ecomuseum Zoo
π 2020-02-20 01:01 in Museums, Public
Not too sure why a wildlife preserve is called an 'ecomuseum', but putting that aside, this small but interesting preserve for animals that were usually wounded and cannot go back to the wild.
Mormally when you go in the dead of winter, and it's -15C outside, you shouldn't expect to see much, but of course Canadian animals are used to the cold, so outside of a couple that were hibernating, the rest were out and about :)

It was a fun 2.5H, outside of how damn cold it was and my not having enough layers to stay outside in such cold that long :)

The lynx were a highlight for me, they totally looked and behaved like house cats that happen to be bigger and walk in the snow :)


hard to know if they would have bitten your hand off had you tried to pet them :)

There were other animals of course:




even the ducks were fine with the cold

They had a few indoor exhibits, which were great to warm me up





Despite the cold, it was definitely fun, it's a bit out of the way if you are in Montreal, but on your way to the airport, it's a perfect stop
