Once there we rent a van that is painted like a zebra. Bought four large bags of food. Oh yeah - you get to feed the animals. It's a great time. Now the drivers window can be controlled and I am the driver because I'll stop whenever and how long the group wants to stay in one place.
All the other windows are missing. They do have bars across them so that the whole animal can't get in - but they can get in enough - trust me.
We had lots of laughs and screams. So much fun. We happened to go on the coldest day of the year so far - it was freezing. We even brought Disco.
Below are some of the animals we fed. Imagine a lot of screaming going on. Food pellets flying. I remember the slobber rags thank goodness.
Do you think I screamed? l I was rolling the window down just a little (I thought) and looked to the other side of the car. Well it was an automatic window and once it started going down it didn't stop - the window went all the way down.
I turned around and this HUGE cow - that was drooling the BIGGEST DROOL EVER - was right next to my face and drooled all over me! I screamed like a girl for a long long time. It scared me to death - the animal and the drool. YUCK!
If you ever get the chance go to one of these places. - go! It's fun and you get to get right up to the animals - close and personal! It is a memory we'll remember for all time.

The first area where you come in are the donkeys.
The ostriches were scary to me - they had the meanest eyes like they would like to peck your eyes out.
He's so sweet - he loved it all and tired to feed each one - especially the babies.
The lions were kept in cages.
As were the camels - have you heard camels spit?
Sandie trying out her photo skills - he was actually far away - the blue heron.
Centered my duck - they moved so fast.
I thought this duck was pretty.
The goats came right up to the van and put their feet on it to get food.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
PS For Gloria - about the beef stew - they were black olives. And the spice is in the spice rack 0r you could look it up and find out the grouping and put them in there. Some famous cooks tie them together and then take it out at the end.
