On Thursday, we went to the Tanganyika Wildlife Park.
The kids had a lot of fun and they got to feed and pet a lot of animals.

While we were waiting in line to get into the park, the kids got to touch this Red Lemur.

This kids thought this waterfall was pretty cool.

These are Colobus Monkeys.
See the little baby??
We didn't get to feed the kangaroos, but we did get to walk through where they were.
If they came up to you, you could touch them.......but none of them wanted to come up to us.

Then we were off to the Lories. (Australian Parrots)
You could feed them nectar from a cup and one even let us hold him!

Feeding the birds:

Zach got it to sit on his hand!

Riley was a little nervous, but with Jeff's help, he sat on his hand too.

It didn't want to sit on Lily's finger......which I think was actually OK with Lily. =)

After looking at some more birds, we moved on to these cool animals:

All three kids had fun feeding a lama and some goats.

They also have bunnies that you can feed and pet!
Lily liked this.

This is a White Handed Gibbon.
It was swinging from these tall ropes.
It was really cool to watch.
Then Jeff noticed that there was a baby hanging on to this monkey while it was swinging!

White Bengal Tigers. These animals were huge!

The kids all got to pet this baby hedgehog.
Isn't he cute??

After waiting in a really long line, we got to go onto Lemur Island.
They have Ring-Tailed Lemurs that you can feed and pet.
You get one craisin (dried cranberry) for one token.
If you hold it in your hand and close your fingers, the lemurs will come up and open your fingers to get the craisin out.
It is really fun to watch.

Lily wasn't too sure about these things!

The Lemurs were really friendly.
They walked all over the "island" and would come up to you.

It was a lot of fun seeing new animals and getting to touch and feed them!!
