Tortoise Love


We spent the day at Green World Eco Park in Hsinchu.  It was a VERY cool place.  It is a huge park and it was hot day, but we had a great time.  The Tiny American was super interested in the emus but they made me really nervous.  By far our favorite area was the building that housed the snakes and other reptiles.  Just outside the reptile house on the lawn these large tortoises were wandering around, Z LOVED them!  At first he was skeptical about touching them, and later we found out we weren't supposed to because they might bite...but he did and we left with all his fingers!  When the weather cools off we will definitely go back and explore some more, there is a bamboo forest that is calling our name.

The Tiny American was slightly skeptical when we told him to touch the tortoise.

He got a little more excited about it when we told him the tortoise was nice.



Safe with Daddy.

    1. There were so many people around I kind of assumed that they were mostly tame but the keeper suggested we not touch them.

    1. I think after we had been there for a little while I think he might have done that...he got more comfortable the longer we were around them. They were certainly big enough for him to ride.
