Situated in Montreal's West Island, the outdoor zoo is the perfect place to get acquainted with Quebec's animal landscape and meet some super cool animals (did I mention they have bears? And lynxes? And foxes? And porcupines? The list literally goes on and on, guys!)

Honestly, the only bad thing about this place is that I'm not there right TF now.
