Today my sister Pam and I met up with my daughter Karen and granddaughter Savannah. We went back to the little zoo in Lafayette, Indiana. Pam had never been. It was a hot humid day. We had bottles of water iced down in the car. We got there in time to see the" snakes alive " show. This is the 40 pound 8'6" boa constrictor. Remember his name is Julius Squeezer. I want to hold him so badly. They only let us touch a rat snake and it was a skinny baby one.
I thought this was a cute sign.
Julius was very shiny and so pretty. He seemed to like his tree. The young girls who tended to the snakes told us more about them. The boa will continue to grow, up to 16 feet in length.
This is my sister pam, we are going into the butterfly area. So many gorgeous flowers all over the zoo property.
It was extremely hot in the butterfly exhibit. So hot that I took some quick shot and did not ask about what kind of butterflies there where .
The girl at the door did say they change regularly.
Lots of butterfly bushes and flowers, plus a water feature for them.
This is the train depot. We did get on board the little train and ride around the park a good ways.
Got to see the ponds with the big water fountain. There were lots of ducks and geese. None in this shot. It was a very hot day but we truly had a fun time and enjoyed it all. Went to lunch and ate a great meal. Then it was time to come home and call it a day. I don't mind saying I am very tired....I am sure it was the heat. So I am not doing anything more today.
Hope your Saturday was wonderful. Stay cool my friends. XO
