Xzootic Animal Park & Butterfly Garden - Bohol, Philippines

One of the tour packages included usually for Bohol tours would be a quick visit to a butterfly garden and an exotic animal park where you can see and touch an albino python!
This is located in Agape, Loay, Bohol.
The photo (below) shows the original dead remains of a Burmese python that used to be the first python being displayed at the zoo before the albino pythons.

The park also includes a butterfly garden with a separate entrance. (there is a fee if you would rather go visit on your own, but free if you sign up for a tour package).
The lady greeter and/or tour guide was glad enough to take our photos with butterfly wings on our back as a "photo effect" how she was doing it! 😁

It is just a small park to see some exotic animals including ostrich, civet cat, bear cats, monkeys, owls, etc...although, it seemed some of them are not that many, since there weren't much to see. But it was worth the experience to see, touch and take photos up close and personal with the pythons. 😉
