Eye to eye & nose to nose


This past Sunday I renewed my annual pass to SeaWorld, this time for two years (they have a cool EZ Pay monthly payment plan!) at the Super Duper Platinum level, and took off to spend four hours at SeaWorld.

SeaWorld San DiegoThe construction they did in preparation for their 50th anniversary here created a really amazing time, especially at the new entrance where there are seven or eight (I lost count) touch pools. I touched the horseshoe crabs and the mantas.

What I like most about SeaWorld is the excitement of the children. I have no doubt that they will grow up with a greater appreciation of wildlife than if they had just seen pictures in a school textbook.

The 50th Anniversary version of SeaWorld also has three flamingo exhibits. One of them is the bestest flamingo exhibit ever because the flamingos walk right up to you, separated only by a fence. You can be eye to eye and nose to nose with them. In fact, I was thinking that the public can get too close to them. If one of those big flamingos decides to go bad, to go rogue, and peck someone in the face, SeaWorld’s going to have problems. Nonetheless, here are a couple of pictures and a video of the new bestest flamingo exhibit ever:

    You may enjoy the children’s responses, but personally I think you’re just a big kid yourself, Riussel ! 😀 It’s obvious your responses are just like theirs. You must be a nice bloke.
