Parc Zoològic de Barcelona (zoo)


Barcelona, Spain (ES)
The Parc Zoològic de Barcelona (zoo) whose most famous resident was an albino gorilla - Floquet de Neu ("Snowflake") - who shuffled off this mortal coil in 2003. The gorilla died of skin cancer, to which a contributing factor was no doubt his decades-long exposure to Barcelona's fierce Mediterranean sunshine in a small open pen. This aspect was conveniently overlooked in the wave of sentimental gush that filled the local media following the primate's demise.
