Teganuma Park

We arranged to spend the afternoon here with one of Fay's co-workers and his son. We did some vigorous ball-kicking, and then when the sun started to set we jumped on the row-boats. ¥500 per boat for 30 minutes.

Gunma Safari Park

November 11; Ken-ken and Der must have had a blast going out with us and their uncles to a Safari park for the first time in their lives. They were on the edge of their seats literally the whole time, as they watched giraffe's licking our car from the rear, buffalo's and reindeer wading in the mud, and lions no more than a few feet from our vehicle defending territory, some battle-worn and wounded. 
Lucky for us it was a cloudy day. Someone mentioned that animals are more active in cloudy weather. Thus, as we passed the cages of cheetahs, white tigers, and more aggressive lions in the walking zone, we experienced some wild behavior; a little taste of savage animal interaction of predator vs. predator. Finally, something raw and different from the average zoo. 

Heavy-duty Antlers

Here, we let the boys feed meat to the lions and white tigers. 

In the Safari park grounds there was a walking area, sorta' like a zoo

The boys are like... "Holy Smoke!" at the rino's. 

Hundreds of photo's photo-shopped and put together to make this incredible Mosaic. 

The taste of crocodile meat

Check out the crocodile meat. Why do most things just taste like chicken. The texture was tougher though.
