We were just in time for the 12:30 Hippopotamus/Alligator show where the park ranger told us all about Lu and also gave a warning about what happens if he starts to twitch his tail...get out of the way! He can blast poo over 15 feet! We stayed well away! Poor Lu was very tired not paying any attention to the crowd that had formed around his pen. He turns 51 later this month.
Then the ranger focused on the lagoon on the other side of the bridge where the alligators were sunning themselves. They didn’t look real...not even a twitch was made by any of them. They are basically dormant in the winter and don`t eat.
After the show was over, we started our wildlife walk around the rest of the park. First stop was the Red Wolves exhibit...
