After having two very full days at the other parks it seemed as though Animal Kingdom gave us just the needed "slow" day. We had heard so much about the safari that we really wanted to try that first so we did. We went on the safari two times in a row just hoping to catch a glimpse of the big lion. I love this picture of everyone waiting in line for the next truck to pick us up.
We were all speculating what animal we would be able to see. Emma really really badly wanted to see baby elephants. I really really wanted to see the big Lion. We saw rhinoceros and
Giraffe and Big mama elephants, and even the lioness, but the big Lion was sleeping and we could only see the top of his mane and there were no baby elephants to be seen. However even though Emma and I didn't get to see the animals we set out to see it really was fascinating watching these animals in their natural habitat. They were completely at home where they were and we loved being able to see them. We even saw this tree that grew upside down. These trees store water in their roots so they can stand to be leafless for 9 months out of the year.
Matthew actually took this shot. These were the trucks that we were in during the safari. Its what you would completely expect to be in if we were in Africa taking a safari there. The flamingos he got in the shot were actually babies and they told us that flamingos eat so many shrimp that is why they turn pink. Babies are all white until they eat enough shrimp to change their color. This was the very majestic tree that was in the middle of the animal kingdom park. It really was very beautiful!!!
They seem to really fit in with the Gorillas !!!! These animals were carved into the tree and the side of the mountain. They really were just beautiful!!! Matthew is just in heaven sitting near this beautiful fountain. They way they had everything set up was just very nice. It was as if they found room for us humans to fit into all the animals home. Tomorrow, see all the video clip we got from the wonderful shows we saw at animal kingdom.
