On Safari

Monty's sister was in town this weekend so we decided to go have some fun at the Wild Wilderness Drive Through Safari. We were not disappointed. There are 5 miles of road that wind through various animal habitats.

Some animals keep their distance while others are right up in your face! Take this emu for instance! He wanted to know what was going on in our car. At one point Monty had the window rolled down and was taking some pics. Aiden was leaning out the back window and Crystal and I were supposed to be watching for animals (windows are supposed to be rolled up at all times!). Out of nowhere this emu comes up from the rear and gets pretty close to the car before we see him and get the windows up. They just look scary and mean! I am convinced they are only there as protectors of the animals. If you even think about getting out of your car, they'll change your mind real fast! The zebra wasn't shy and Aiden was trying to pet him and give him kisses through the window.

The camel greeted each car as it came along.There were so many animals! I was really impressed! After the drive through part there was an extensive petting zoo. Aiden was enthralled with the baby goats and tried hugging them all. He wanted to touch the chickens but they weren't so cooperative!

The calf and the water buffalo just walked along with us.The lemur just relaxed in the shade while everyone petted him. He was too cute!
The sweet baby tigers were down for a nap so we couldn't pet them. :(
Mr. Peacock struttin' his stuff!
What else did we get to pet? Bunnies, monkeys, turtles, donkeys, mama goats, a baby porcupine, and so much more! What a fun day!
