The Biodome has five ecosystems of the Americas including a tropical rainforest, Laurentian Maple Forest, Golf of St Lawrence, Labrador Island and Sub-Antarctic Islands. Each section has flora and fauna consistent with those ecosystems and visitors can walk around the paths and viewing platforms admiring the lovely flowers and spotting the sometimes shy animals.
Finally, we came to the Sub-Antarctic Islands, which is ironic given that we're closer to the Arctic than the Antarctic! Here we saw lots of penguins sitting on the icy rocks, swimming playfully in the water and popping back up onto the rocks. It felt like we were watching a live version of the movie Happy Feet!

After discovering the Naturalia exhibition, and spending more time there than walking through the zoo part, we never did get to the park but we had a great day and will definitely go again while we're here. Thanks again Dan!
