Description

I made 13 observations of birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals at this market. I can provide more details for anyone interested. There were many, many more bird species so I focused on the parrots, herps, and non-domesticated mammals. Since these are captive observations, please tag other users in the comments who may be able to help id.
