On Friday, we decided to take an impromptu *Family Fieldtrip* to the African Lion Safari, just outside of Toronto. It was a bright and sunny day, perfect for mingling with the animals. We drove through 9km of game reserves that included animals from Africa, Asia and the Americas, but disappointingly, no elephants! Apparently, the only way to see the pachyderms is to watch their show, *Elephant Roundup.* After the hour-long tour, we didn't have the energy to stick around for it. Maybe next time.
Of course, I took a million photos. Here's a sample of a few of my favourites:
And now for some fun facts:
rhinos love mudbaths but can't roll over because of their protruding spine.
did you know the ostrich's brain is smaller than its eyeball?
king of the jungle overlooking his pride...lions sleep for 15-20 hrs a day...what a life!
African Lion Safari is now closed for the season, but if you're ever in Southern Ontario, you should definitely plan a visit!
