It's not just animals that you will see when you visit San Diego's Wild Animal Park. There are gardens like these - the Epiphyllum and the Bonsai Gardens (and the Old World Succulent Garden, which I will post pictures in my next post) for plants lovers too! I guess most of the people are just into the animals because there was nobody there when I visited these gardens. Well, if you wonder what epiphyllums are, they are epiphytic cacti with flattened leaf-like stems and large white flowers that open at night. You should see them yourself, they have a wild collection at this zoo!
