Some palms:

The cacti and succulents:

And the Bromelias

Almost forgot…. the animals

Here is the famous Sagui :)

Hope you all enjoy it.

Those were brilliant, has to be some of the weirdest ( in a nice way, no offence meant) plants I've ever seen, along with the first ones you posted! It was nice to see some of the animals, the birds were very nice but Sagui was my favorite, very cute! Thanks for posting them Aleyna.

Fantastic! I was oohing and aahing over the palms and then I scrolled down and saw the cacti! I've never seen anything like that first cactus! I love the way it seems to be growing right out of the rock.

HI Lauram,

I agree with you, actually was that cactus that took my attention. The cacti land is about one level higher than the main level of the BG. That plant caught my sight. I've been to the Mexican Botanical Garden and saw a lot of lovely plants there, I proudly confess our Cacti spot at our BG is quite better than there.
