Last weekend my friend and I went to Camp Palo Verde to visit the Out of Africa Zoo. Camp Palo Verde basically has 2 things, the zoo and a casino. We visited both. This zoo is pretty impressive when you consider it is entirely funded by visitors, no government funding. A male giraffe costs $45K, while a female is $100K, so just males here. They had some beautiful 10 month old white wolves, lions that you could get pretty close to. I have a few shots through fences which I try to avoid but wanted the tiger and wolf. It is in a beautiful setting and the animals seemed to be quite content for the most part. There was hardly anybody there, with the exception of 41 well behaved boy scouts.
