We went to Tanganyika Wildlife Park, and had a great time. Without making this post all about the mission of Tanganyika, we'll just say it's like a zoo, but offers more interaction with the animals. Here were some of the highlights.
The wildlife park has a kangaroo section where you can go in the exhibit cage area with the kangaroos,which is pretty cool.
So, everyone thinks kangaroos are pretty cute right? And you think the baby kangaroo in the pouch is adorable, yes? You picture something like this:
In reality, it turns out they don't usually look like that. Usually some random body part sticks out, rather than a cute little head.
Here's one where we got a peek at the baby in the pouch.
I showed you a picture of Isabelle with the lemur in my post yesterday. At Tanganyika, they have the lemurs on an island and you can go on the island, right into the exhibit, and feed the lemurs. For some reason, apparently lemurs really don't like to be petted, and they caution you many times against petting them. You can sit with them, and feed them, but you cannot pet them.
When we went on the island, the lemur keepers instructed the kids to raise their hand if they wanted to be given a treat to feed to the lemurs. Clearly, this lemur wanted a treat too!
Kaylee's got a lemur in her lap!
And here's Isabelle with her lemur friend again.
Tanganyika also has an area where you can get in the enclosure with rabbits, and you can purchase lettuce to feed them.
You can also do the same with the tortoises.
I also need to announce a winner from the snackTAXI review and giveaway.
There was a total of 44 comments.
Don't forget, there's two other giveaways going on right now. You can make multiple entries in The Protein Bakery giveaway and all it takes is a comment for a chance to win Prefense Hand Sanitizer.
I have several other giveaways lined up, but it's just hard to find the right balance of keeping my blog about me, my family, and whatever ramblings are in my head, and mixing in giveaways. I enjoy having real content for real readers, not just product reviews and people hoping to win giveaways.
If zoos made if safe to interact and feed any animal, which animal would you like to interact with?
