Christmas Eve Safari

We went by the Safari Park to see if all the animals were ready for Santa to come visit. The tigers didn’t act very excited, they were just taking naps or just laying around.

The next stop was the goat corral, where we gave them got a nice brushing, so they would look nice for Santa. We finished off our visit by watching the elephants, rhinos, and giraffes roam around.

Walkabout Australia

We started off with a visit with the Tigers, then took a walkabout in the new Australia section of the Safari Park. As part of the new area, there is an enclosure you can walk around in with some kangaroos and wallabies. I got some great pictures of the little (and not so little) guys.

Baby Elephants

The two new baby elephants, Zuli and Kaia, are a lot of fun to watch run around and play.

Butterfly Jungle

I took the boys to see Butterfly Jungle at the Safari Park, which is an aviary where they have different species of butterflies flying around inside with you.

While waiting in line, one of the zoo keepers was offering samples of mealworms and crickets to taste. Gavin went for the mealworm, and said it tasted like popcorn. Connor was disgusted.

Hunting Platypuses

The Safari Park is the new home of 2 platypuses, the only 2 outside of Australia. The zoo had been working on getting them for over 100 years, as it was a dream of the founder to have some.

Unfortunately, it was quite dark in their exhibit (they are nocturnal), and I had a huge line of people behind me, so I didn’t get any good photos of them. The exhibit had only been open one day, so hopefully next time I go I will have more time to try to get a better shot.
