What a nice lion we found, he was so kind and gentle, until he tried to eat my baby!
I think that J's favorite animal is a Lion, so even though this one tried to eat Baby B, we let J meet him and take a picture with him too. J didn't understand that the ropes around the animals meant "Don't go inside or touch the animals" We had the privilege of grabbing him, as he tried to get a little to close, several times.
J also put on his own little show during the reptile show that we watched while we were there. He is a big boy now and big boys don't sit on Mom's lap- without screaming- so he used his freedom to wander up the the front of the show and touch all the props while the presenter was looking the other way. He has no fear.
