Ruby Tuesday: Zooper train

This is the Zooper train that carries visitors around the Zoobic Safari, an animal theme park inside the Subic Freeport Zone in the former American Naval Base. Zoobic spreads throughout the 25-hectare forest terrain with various exotic animals roaming in their natural habitat. Get a glimpse of the Aeta culture, and roam with Bengal tigers, ostriches, wild boars and guinea fowls. Get up close and personal with various reptiles, a chance to feed the crocs, interact with rodents, monkeys, and other animals at the petting zoo. This place is a powerful reminder of the kinship we share with wildlife and other living creatures, our "fellow prisoners of life's splendor."

That's a fancy looking train engine!

I'm interested in getting a feel of the Aeta culture when I visit. The Zoobic Safari may not be the ideal place but I will take whatever is within the reach of my limited time there.
