So, I’m not doing a fun fact today. Instead, I thought we would get those creative juices flowing! I came across a fun little snip it and I wanted everyone to comment on what exactly they would choose and why? Can’t wait to hear them!! Here’s mine below!
That’s actually super hard for me to choose! Each one would be fabulous in their own way! I mean, if the museum was like the movie, Night of the Museum, that would be cool. And with a library, think of all the fantastic books you could read! Bbbuuttt…I’m going to have to go with the zoo. Yes, that’s my final answer.
Why exactly? Well, for one thing animals are mesmerizing, each and every one of them. They all hold their own secret wonder. I actually volunteered and worked at a zoo starting at the age of 13.
I’ve raised all kinds of animals including my most favorite, two female lion cubs. Evangeline and Adiri were born June 7, 1997. It was the most amazing time in my life while raising them from a bottle until they reached over a 100 pounds at 6 months of age. Unfortunately, they were sent to a Canadian Zoo, and I never saw them again. I tried to keep up with them as best I could. I do know that from both of them, I now have grandlions and great-grandlions!
Even now when I go to any zoo, the noises and even the smells bring me back to that time, a time where I felt truly at home. The howl of the gibbons, the squawk of the macaws, and the roar of the lions – that made everyone stop and run to see them. Now, don’t get me wrong, all of them are still wild animals, unpredictable and untamed. But that’s the beauty of them. Here’s a little fun fact too. I actually got married at the zoo. Yep, with peacocks and all! LOL!
So, in conclusion, the zoo would be the place for me by just being able to see everyday those beautiful creatures. Yes, I could definitely spend the rest of my life there.
Can’t wait to hear where and why everyone else would choose! Happy Friday Ya’ll!
P.S. And a shout out to all zookeepers!!! No one understands how truly difficult your job is until they’ve filled your shoes. Between cleaning the not so nice things left in the occupant’s cage, to having to work in all types of weather, to having to say goodbye to cherished animals over the years – I thank you so much for your hard work so that myself and the rest of the public get to enjoy these amazing creatures!!
