|No, not THIS Noah's Ark!|
My brother was in town for a couple days the week before Thanksgiving, and he, my hubby, and I took a trip to a really neat place. Noah's Ark. That's what the place is called ... it's not like we made a quick run to Mt. Ararat or anything.
It's actually a privately-owned animal sanctuary here in Georgia. A sprawling place which a variety of furry, scaly, and feathered animals now call home. (And some of the ... "Hello! Pretty bird!" ... feathered ones are VERY talkative!)
This emu was almost as interested in watching us as we were in watching him. There was an extremely large group (flock? herd?) of emus at the sanctuary. Not sure why there were so many of them. Maybe some breeders unloaded them on the facility.
In spite of the thought for the day, we didn't see any actual lambs and lions cuddling up together, but we did see something almost as startling.
|And HERE, resting beside the fence, is a lion.|
And here's the lion and tiger ... TOGETHER! Oh my!
And, surprise! Above, you'll see the third member of this unusual trio. When the chow wagon drew near, the bear lumbered out to join the cats. Guess he was hungry.
|Here's the three of them together.|
|And another shot of the three amigos.|
|The bear and tiger kept nuzzling each other affectionately.|
|The lion is slurping on what the caretakers called a beef popsicle.|
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
