Here we are! I want to see the monkeys! Come on gram! Ohhhhh! There’s one spitting water out of his mouth. Cohen really wanted to see the
alligators. This is a Chinese alligator. He’s not real big. Two! There’s two of them. One, two. Oh, there is two! I thought that one was a statue! They’re sitting so quietly. They don’t move too much, do they! There’s a big American alligator. He’s not moving either. He’s enjoying the Sun. Wow! These are giant tortoises. Look grandma! Giant tortoises. Wow, there’s so many. And they’re so big you could ride on them. Yeah! Look how long he is. Point to the snake. Look scared! Ahhhhh! Cool! There’s a pit viper. There’s a lizard in there too! We’re going to the primate house. He’s going over there. There he is, Cohen! Way up at the top. What are we gonna do next? We’re gonna watch the stingrays. Stingrays! He said, “Not touch their tails”. Yeah, don’t touch their tails. What was it gonna be to see this? For a ticket? $3.95? $3.95 a person. Under two years old is free. And train was going to be like $7.95. And we want to do the Children’s Zoo which costs. So we just bought the Adventure Pass for
$12.95. And that was cheaper all around. Should I pet a stingray? Try to grandpa. Just let them swim under your hand. You can feed them too. You can feed them! Yup. You have to wash your
hands before you go in. There they go! Splashing the water. Yeah, that’s a baby one! They’re swimming with the shark. Look at that guy! They’re buddies, aren’t they. What you’re gonna do, you’re gonna put your hand out flat like this. And put it in between the two middle fingers, and just hold it there. And the Stingray is gonna come over the top of your hand, and just suck it right up like a vacuum. Whoa, that sounds like fun! So their mouth is actually on their stomach, so
they need to come right over your hand before they can suck it up. Okay! He’s waiting on one. Say, “Come here, it’s lunchtime!” Did it get it? Yeah! Okay, so now you gotta feed it…what is that stuff? A squid and a shrimp. It’s a squid. How old are these? The youngest we have is about four weeks old, and the oldest we have is a little over 22 years old. Oh, wow! Say, “Lunchtime”. Tell him.
