Camels abound in our zoo. Ross once begged me to stand by this camel for a photo shoot. I heard they spit, and I was scared to stand next to him. Wouldn't you?....have your back to this creature, who could at any moment hawk up something to spit at you? He tends to like his photo taken, as you can see here.
No zoom lens used here. He is just right there.
They do have a little petting zoo. I let the girls pet the rabbits. They had a chicken petting area, but the chickens looked so unhealthy, we stayed with the rabbits.
I have sewn those pants about 5 times. I finally decided the hole stays. Just so you understand that.
Everywhere we walked, I heard random comments in Turkish like, "Are they all hers?" or "I am counting 5, they have 5!" I couldn't resist a polite smile. They didn't think I understood them. At one point, a lady said, "Well, those 2 are twins." Annika replied in Turkish, "I'm not her twin. I am her big sister." I was proud of her, they are usually nervous to try their Turkish.
Come to think of it, they did look like twins that day.
