It's a really cool zoo and they have done a great job of keeping it very "jungle-like" and natural. It felt like we were wandering through a forest and just stumbling upon animals. They had all kinds of creatures and I was being a good sport (I'm not very outdoorsy) until we came to the reptile exhibit. I haaaaaaate reptiles. Hate. So there's a big sign welcoming us to the reptile area and I am adamant that I won't go in. First of all, there was a wooden bridge over a lake, suspended by rope that led you to the other side of the place. In that lake were the gators.
It just looks like dried up dirt or old tires/rubber, right? I saw it and didn't think anything of it but I admit I didn't really look at it that long. That, my friends, was an 800lb gator! See where the wood of the walkway is? I was standing right there!!!! I threw the camera to B, grabbed Syd's stroller and hustled us out of there.
