The Crocodile Farm/Zoo

Yesterday, we went with our favorite family to the Crocodile Farm. It was fun to ride in their car and not have to worry about transportation. It was also a lot of fun to experience it all with 3 fun kids... they had been there before, but it's always fun to watch kids discover things.

Highlights of the day:
  • Holding and feeding baby tigers.
  • "Fishing" for crocodiles
  • The croc wrestling show where guys rode on, picked up, and slid into crocodiles
  • Holding my breath during the croc show while the guys had their heads and hands inside the crocs' mouths
  • Feeding bananas to hippos
  • Walking under an elephant (still not getting on one)
  • Matt ate crocodile meat
  • Matt held a chimpanzee
  • Feeding chicken ribs cages to giant crocodiles
  • Being SO close to lots of animals
  • The weather was beautiful!
  • Seeing an elephant ride a bike kinda thing
  • Buying a picture painted by an elephant
Okay, so seriously, we've been to two zoos/parks this week, and we might be going to an aquarium tomorrow. Zoos in America are not going to be the same. It's so much fun to be able to have so much interaction with the animals here.
