One of Three Pelicans, so funny to watch. Love the pattern in the sand.
First Animals Touched: String Rays
Second Animals Touched: Dolphin
I've always wanted to do an dolphin encounter and this was close to it.
Such a happy face.
They're easiest to touch if feeding. Some will talk to you as you feed. Later we fed the sea lions and the next day we fed the sting rays. (So much better than the petting zoo fare of a hand full of corn and some mammal slobber.)
Lined up for petting.
Later: Dolphin under the water and performing above, petting a penguin and a Clydesdale (touching animals three and four), sea lions, manatee, whales, and more.
I only took my camera in the first day and, while I don't regret the bulk, I wish we had pictures of petting the exotic birds (fifth animals touched) and seeing the Polynesian dinner performance.
