We went to opening day on July 30th with 2 other families and had a great time. The weather was great-hot but a nice breeze. It was new so the overwhelming hot poo smell was barely noticeable. Not like at home where poo filled diaps get wedged under the computer and proceed to bake and fill the house with smell. Who knew visiting a pasture of Bison would smell better than my house? I do, now!
African Crown Cranes
A really big tortoise. We want to get one. I want one that walks around both inside and outside. Our friend "Reptile Rick" who is a huge part of the park had one at his house we looked at and he said it had been neglected. It had a soft shell from lack of nutrition and he gave it Tums to strengthen it's shell. I found that so interesting. They couldn't take away my heartburn when I was prego but by golly they do a fantastic job hardening the shell of a turtle.
A majority of the zebras are prego. I will never be prego again. We will have to go back and see the babies. The park was a fantastic time. Not so big that your miserable trying to see everything to get your monies worth. Great layout, friendly staff. If your looking for a way to spend 3 hours, take a drive to Alto and check them out.
Thanks Rick and Sara!
