OK, so this Ostrich was possessed or something. It came up to me and went crazy on the bucket of food. I thought, "Man, if I'm going to have any food left, I better put it in the center of the tram." Nope. The ostrich just stretched his neck and gobbled up the rest. I was sitting on the edge, but he reached 3 people in to get the food. It was just a tad unnerving! You can see by the picture that the food was just FLYING into his mouth, he was eating so fast!
Aeron was enthralled by all the animals! He just couldn't stop cooing at them, and when he would take a breath, he got this funny scowl on his face. It was pretty funny to watch.
Seriously up close & personal. These animals were HUGE! You can only see a small portion of their horns. All the other animals in the park would give these a wide berth and so we were a little nervous at first. But once the food was there, they didn't mind at all to be touched. It was pretty amazing.
Here's part of the gang. That's Brandon's family in the front. Matt & our kids were in the back of the tram and so we got all the stragglers.
