Tortoises in Taipei Zoo, Taiwan

For tortoise enthusiasts, Taipei Zoo is popular because of a viral video where one Sulcata tortoise accidentally flipped over its back and was helped by his other Sulcata friend to be turned over. Watch the video in this Natgeo link

But besides this, I think Taipei Zoo has very nice indoor and outdoor setups for tortoises. Some of the enclosures look way too dry in my opinion, but overall it's did an excellent job in terms of presentation. It also had a lot of tortoise species as well as other reptile species in display. It's always nice to get different ideas of how different places take care of their tortoises and incorporate them in our own enclosures.

To go to the Taipei Zoo, we just took the MRT Wenshan-Neihu Line and got off at Taipei Zoo Station. Very simple.
