12/4/19 – Reino Animal is like a petting zoo but for actual zoo animals—we went on a safari ride through gazelles, giraffes, camels, water buffaloes, zebras, and ostriches, just to name a few. We could even feed many of them! It was super cool but also kinda gross to get our hands covered in so much animal slobber and see close-ups if their gnarly mouths. For part of the safari, we boarded a double-caged car so we could drive through predators like tigers, lions, and wolves. We also caught part of a dog show and walked through an aviary with several emus and peacocks that fanned their spectacular feathers. My mother said it was the first time in her life to see a peacock on full display like that!
