Over the Christmas holidays Kylie, Jocelyn, Rachel Blaine and l, went to Shenzhen for a couple of days, and while we were there we visited the Zoo. It's not as big as Calgary's, but it's actually a pretty interesting zoo.
|These taxis line up for about two blocks all day long.|
|Entrance to the zoo!|
|We rented a horse and carriage to get around in as its quite a bit of walking.|
|Loved feeding the animals! This was a baby giraffe and was very cute!|
|Rachel loves the animals.|
|We all enjoyed feeding the animals!!|
|This guy just about took my thumb off when he yanked the reeds out of my hand|
and my thumb caught on the railing!
|I couldn't hit his mouth even when he stood there with it open, but Jocelyn had better aim!|
|The grounds were very pretty and green with lots of trees and landscaping.|
Rachel was a little nervous about riding in the buggy! You could get off see what you wanted and
then hop back in to ride up the hills!
|The highlight was riding in this bus inside the tiger and lion enclosures and feeding them raw chicken on|
a stick!! Kylie and Rachel didn't go but took pictures from the safety of the glass viewing areas.
|This lion wasn't too interested in coming for the meat hanging out of the wire mesh!|
|The tigers on the other hand would run alongside the bus and when it stopped would jump up|
looking for the meat.
|Boy would you hate to meet them without the safety of the cage!!|
|I don't think they would allow you to do this in Canada!!|
|Their feet and heads are so massive!|
|Just waiting patiently......|
|...to jump up and grab you!!!|
|Surrounded!! Look how tall that one is in the back!|
|Well, after the excitement of the bus ride Rachel and Grandpa had a rest and checked out the map|
to see where we should go next.
|The bears were next on the list!|
|Rachel throwing apples to the bears.|
|They remind me of the gophers at home, standing up on their hind legs checking things out!|
|Just hanging out and waiting for the goodies!|
|It was a fun time visiting the zoo!. Little kids always have so much enthusiasm and its fun to watch them|
learning and experiencing the world.
