It's Friday and I give new meaning to the word TIRED. Someone keeps begging me to check out the nearby zoo..... apparently a lot of work went into the building of this zoo so I decided to check it out.
|This was our guide. For some reason he insisted on NOT wearing very much clothing. He runs the place.|
He told our group (and by group I mean me and Johnny Depp) all about this tree boa. (He isn't the only one with an imagination.)
Our Zoo Guide gave us this map.
|He said it includes "Africa, Australia, and Baltimore" ??|
I have to say maps confuse me, but this one really confused me...one area looked like the other area.
|Copperhead (do those bars looks safe to you?)|
|Poisonous Spitting King Cobra|
(I wouldn't know any of this if it wasn't for our intelligent zoo guide.)
|A variety of species such as the "spotted piggy bankilla" and the "blue tarantula".|
|If you look inside this area you will find a wild and terrifying animal...|
|called a "Cheetah named Buddy Love!" Beware.|
|This sign reads "DANGER- Deadly Spider".|
|Don't get too close.|
Our tour was interrupted because our zoo guide had an emergency call.
|At first I thought he was showing off for the camera, but then|
|I actually witnessed (as he was telling me) him air lifting a tiger....|
|into his helicopter. It was a close one.|
|After the emergency, we saw some birds.|
|and (our neighbors) plant life (because I have no green thumb talent).|
|Back to Africa. We had to be very quiet because....|
|this new baby monkey, just born, was sleeping.|
|Green Snake (this zoo has a lot of freaking snakes).|
|The anticipation was killing me when...|
|he revealed an African Rock Python.|
|He made me touch it, but I was not bitten once.|
I didn't want to go, but I'm glad I went because it was a VERY interesting and exciting trip!
