|Michael holds a baby croc|
While Michael's sisters were gone on their service trip, Michael had a taste of being an only child. Not nearly as much fun as having his sisters around. One day we decided to go re-explore the Crocodile Park together, the nearest thing to a zoo in Davao.
Here's a peek at some of what we saw...
(no exotic squirrels today, like we've sometimes seen in captivity here!)
|an imposing cassawary|
|just a little wary of the cassawary...|
|the most amusing of birds. I could have watched him hop around in his rabbit-y way for hours!|
|I had to chuckle; where else would you see orangutans eating mango for lunch?|
|but this guy made me sad...|
|momma tiger well-enclosed in a chain-link cage|
|and her playful baby tiger...|
|playing under the bushes here behind this low rope fence...:eek!:|
|reminders of how very difficult the English language can be|
|and of the culture of the tribes around us|
|couldn't get much closer!|
|and then there was the sleepy civet, whose presence helps in the production of the locally grown coffee...|
|in the gift store - anyone want to try some? I'm not brave enough, but we'd be happy to bring some back for you! ;)|
You just never know what you'll see at the Crocodile Park!
