Animal lovers will be in heaven at Expo 67. There are 23 large aquariums filled with all kinds of fish and marine mammals, and a pool for aquatic birds that brightens up the Alcan pavilion in La Ronde. The Marine Circus, starring five dolphins, is also very popular. Elephants, ostriches and a number of other animals are housed in the Safari, located at the far end of La Ronde. You can even ride a camel! One of the most popular residents of the Safari, a bear cub from the Himalayas, escaped on May 14, but was quickly found. A number of pavilions also house animals: you can see several kangaroos and wallabies at the Australian pavilion, and monkeys at the Man and Life pavilion. The two lion cubs given to the City of Montreal by the Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie, live in a cage near the Ethiopian pavilion: these small felines love ice cream!
