Bhannerghatta Biological Park

On Christmas Day, we finally took Maggie to the Bangalore zoo to have her elephant ride. You can read all about the Biological Park and the Safari in my blog post.
Here is a view of how the safari bus was armored.
Bison.
Sloth bear.
Lion cubs.
Dalton was signing "dog" and "cat" the whole bus ride.No zoom. Helooooo, white tiger.
We're not sure if this sign was horribly outdated or horribly politically incorrect. Probably both.
Words cannot describe how excited our kids were about seeing the elephants up close. But this picture of Maggie comes close!
Lots of caiman. They had several different types of crocodiles, but none so plentiful as these!
This guy wanted his picture taken with Maggie... but didn't have a camera.
The people in front of us stuck their hands under this fence and petted the zebra.
Dalton petting the elephant.
Baby elephant giving Maggie a kiss.
Even the elephants were greedy for tips.
Dalton was so excited about all the other elephants in the enclosure.
This is the only picture with all four of us. Next time we'll sit on the same side!

Looks like quite a different zoo experience than you would have here. Very cool and I'm sure unforgetable.

Looks like lots of fun. I so happy you get this great experience.
I have learned lots about other cultures and have so much respect for ours and others that I didn't have before moving to Korea.
