Busch Gardens: Trainer for a Day
While off for a few days of vacation, I signed up for the Trainer for a Day program at Busch Gardens. It is an interactive experience where you go behind the scenes and learn about the animals and how to take care of them. Last year, I did the Marine Mammal Keeper Experience at Sea World, and last weekend, I did the Elephant Keeper for a Day; I loved them both and need to post photos about both soon.
Anyway, the Trainer for a Day program was a lot of fun, and I learned a ton about the animals, which included the hoofstock (giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, etc) on the Serengeti Plain, kangaroos, tortoises, and the animal ambassadors (sloth, flamingos, armadillos, raven, etc). It was a great day, and my tour guides and the keepers were awesome about taking photos for me, so I thought that I would share some. I totally fell in love with that tortoise, and that face on the kangaroo while eating just won my heart.
