Bois du Petit-Château, La Chaux-de-Fonds

"This afternoon, I went to Bois du Petit Château with my mum. At the entrance, there was a little footbridge which we went across. We watched the otters racing each other in the clear water of the pond. Then, in the vivarium, I held my mum’s hand tight when I saw the snakes. I was a bit scared but I also loved watching them. My favourite thing was walking in the goats’ enclosure: they came up to me, I could even stroke them! I also saw deer, ibex, bears and lynx. At the end, in the big play area, I had an ice cream on the swing. It was really hot so I even paddled in the pond!"
