Last summer, Heather told me about a “cool new zoo,” that she had just heard about. She suggested we take the kids out to check it out. I agreed, and I am so glad we did! The place is Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park, in Alto. It was about a 30 minute drive for us but worth every minute! This is like a petting zoo mixed with an exotic animal park, where you can really get close to the animals!
We had so much fun checking out the awesome animals, and photographing them as we went. I was able to get up close and personal with the Ring-Tailed Lemurs and Serval Cats, thanks to one of our new friends, Rick the Reptile Guy.
They have an awesome parakeet enclosure where the birds will actually come perch right on you to eat birdfeed off a Popsicle stick, so cool!
After having a blast out at Boulder Ridge, we kept in touch with Rick and he came down to the studio. He didn’t come alone though! Enter the giant Monitor and 16 foot Reticulated Python!
While the Python behaved for Rick, I’m quite sure she was trying to kill me! I guess that’s why he’s the Reptile Guy and not me!
Check out our awesomely brave daughter, Abigail!
