Gee I wish my camera had fresh batteries in it ..... Wandered around the Western Fair today with Malcolm seeing the exhibit from Ray's Reptile Zoo, based in Ottawa. It is always a fantastic show, the handlers really know how to get the kids involved with the creatures.
We saw a yellow anaconda, reticulated python, king cobra, pink footed Tarantula, bearded dragon, a few monitor lizards, various tortoises...really cool....so glad they were behind walls. I was brave enough to touch a black rat snake. eek!!
Funniest moment....during the live show, the handler is talking about Tarantulas, specifically the one he is holding in his hand....ewww....yes I know; however he is talking about the spider's hairy butt and how it uses it for defense, well he asks the kids, all sitting down on the floor in front of him, what other animal has a hairy butt? So he gets the typical answers, dogs, bears etc., then one little girl, about 6 or 7 from the look of her shouts out "My DAD"!!! I haven't laughed like that in awhile!! Man it was funny!!
Had to share!!! :) Having a great Mommy/Son day!!
Happy St. Patricks Day!!
