A number of animals at Zoobic are allowed to roam freely and interact with guests. While we were listening to our guide, a stately ram sauntered into the middle of the group and began nuzzling hands and bags. "Nakikichika din," remarked a friend, laughing. The kids were in awe. There were also pigs, miniature horses, ostriches, lots of snakes and reptiles (in glass cages, of course), even a few tarsiers and the Palawan mouse deer, the world's smallest hoofed animal!
But what really tickled me was seeing how Zoobic made every effort to play with its name in posters and signages all over the area. The punning got funnier and funnier as we went along. Lookie:
Clever, catchy name, don't you think? So far, so good.
"Aeta's Zoovenirs." Erm, keri na din.
This had me chuckling with its grinning, campy tone. Zige, go!
But this one took the cake, and had me doing a double take to figure out what it meant. Ano daw? Ipilit ba talaga?!
