March 23rd, 2015 - Port Douglas, Australia - Day 219

Peter's POV

This guy was our greeter today at the Wildlife Habitat

Today I woke up and found everyone working like usual. We decided to go back to the wildlife habitat to watch them feed the crocodiles. It was very cool.   I originally thought that they were going to feed the giant saltwater croc but they only fed the smaller freshwater crocs.

When the trainer started talking all of the crocs moved over to where he was standing. He told us which croc was the leader and tried to get the crocs to jaw slap by throwing fish on the top of there mouths.  A jaw slap sounds like a big pop - almost like when you put your finger in your mouth and make it pop.  

After the feeding we walked through the rainforest section of the Habitat because we had skipped it the day before.  We saw a Cassowary - which is pretty closely related to a velociraptor.  Our guide yesterday showed us how he will follow you if you start running so Lea and I tried, but he would not follow us.  They are apparently pretty dangerous in the wild.  

It was nice inside the rainforest section with birds flying all over the place.

We also made it back over to see the koalas one more time just because they are so darn cute.

When it was over we left the park and made lunch. After lunch we decided to relax for a while and get into the pool.

Instead of getting into the pool Lea decided to go for a run so it was just me and my parents. We swam for a while and hopped out. We then decided t do some trip planning before dinner. We still don't have the final part of the trip planned out completely. We made tacos for dinner, they were delicious. Maybe it is because we haven't had tacos hard shelled tacos for 8 months but these tacos were amazing. We finished dinner and finished the day with We Bought a Zoo.
