Our family outing at Longleat

Yesterday we went to Longleat for the day with Grandma and Grampy, mummy, daddy and Travis.

We went on Rockin Rhinos and Lions then we went on the safari bus.  We saw lions, wolves, tigers, cheetahs, monkeys, vultures, zebras, giraffes, Anne the elephant, rhinos and camels. After lunch we saw some giant porcupines and then went to the animal handling section where we saw daddy’s old iguana called Iggy.

Mummy and daddy had to rehome Iggy when they had me and now he has a lovely new home and new friends at Longleat.  It was so lovely to see him happy it made me and mummy cry.

Then we saw the stingrays which  we were allowed to touch but they didn’t sting because they were kind ones. We saw a parrot show where parrots went on scooters and said ‘hello’.  They were really clever and I even got a kiss on the head from one! I also feed some little parrots with nectar. We then went out on a boat where we saw the sea lions, hippos and the gorillas.

My favourite bit was the Bat Cave where bats were flying around our heads.  They were real and they were from the wild.  They were called egyptian fruit bats and they were really fluffy and cuddly and we saw them hanging upside down on branches.

We also saw a snake, a tarantula and some giant anteaters which had big noses just like an elephant. The last thing we did was to go into the house which is where the king and queens lived a long time ago.

I want to do a Show and Tell all about Iggy in which I will show everyone in my class some photos of him.
