Batty Tree #ThursdayTreeLove

Image for Mumbai's Zoo


Mumbai’s zoo is not the best zoos in the world, but it does have a marvellous collection of trees. Last year, the zoo acquired some Penguins and after a brief visit to the penguins, Wow Dinga wanted to play on the equipment.

While waiting , we happened to look up and spied a tree full of bats .

Who do you think was more astonished ? Us, looking at the bats or the bats who were staring down at us ?

  1. Wow, that was batty indeed. As a kid, I used to love going to the zoo and look at all those animals (in Delhi, never been to the Mumbai one), but as I became older, I realized how pitiful and cruel the conditions are for the poor animals, so I stopped going.

  2. “Bats who were staring down at us!!” That must have been creepy. Several trees that were home to Bats were cut down in Pune and I do feel sad for them.. I wonder where they must have gone now…

    That’s a Baobab isn’t it? I visited Rani Chi Bag in Mumbai when I was a child and have faint memories .. I have to plan a mumbai visit just to see the trees in this garden…

  3. I remember having seen the eucalyptus trees, housing the colonies of bats near Mryutyunjayeshwar Temple, Kothrud Pune. Come evening and you would see them venturing out in intimidating numbers!
    I used to get more than astonished on sighting them!
