Willowbank Part 2
I suppose they fit with the reptiles. These tortoises decided to move outside just as we arrived. It's always nice seeing them on the move.
Some cuddles from Hezekiah.
I think these must have been young ones as they don't have the very clear bump on their necks yet.
Hezekiah doesn't mind getting up close and personal. I was just waiting for the goat to give him a big lick.
Hannah having a stare down with the goat too. I think he was just patiently longing for a bit of food but their packet was almost empty.
I can really understand now why they also call these areas a "petting zoo". Hezekiah really did love petting the different animals and they were all so nice and tame and enjoyed his attention.
Guinea Foul roaming around. Someone asked me to take a photo.
The girls enjoyed feeding the peacock and other birds that were roaming around the picnic area.
This got us chatting about taxidermy.
As we were walking Ruth spotted this gas trap. She knows about them from her Kiwi Watch trips - where they empty and re-set traps. Well spotted Ruth. And thanks for the extra information.
I do miss the owls in South Africa. There are only a very few in NZ.
Asher wanted to have her own photo like this. :-)
