Where the wild things are

Our latest fieldtrip was to Dade City to Wild Things. It is a reserve for rescued animals. We were quite surprised to fine so many different and exotic animals. Everyone loved seeing them upclose, at times a little too upclose. As you can see in the pics we are mere inches away from wild big animals with just chain-link fence separating us.

The monkeys were funny because they were misbehaving instead of our kids. One of the most amazing sights was the black jaguar. We could see his spots as he laid out in the sun. The black panther seemed to be staring right into the camera, challenging us. Olivia was convinced that the little black potbellied pig was talking to her in a snorting language. We kept our eyes on the two bengal tiger brothers who were feeling invaded on and needed to mark their territory.

Riding on the trolley through downtown was fun too ! Go if you get a chance.
