A few weeks ago, my family and I went to Longleat,Wiltshire! It was really fun and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
After a 2 hour drive, we arrived in Longleat! We decided to have a look at the other animals that they had before going on the safari itself. The first animal we saw were the adorable meerkats! Behind us were big, black sloths and otters. The otters were sleeping so we decided to leave them alone. There were pythons and rare butterfly’s and ferrets and Giant Millipedes….. Ewwwww! If those animals were too much well…….. I have more! Goats, Weird looking birds and, speaking of birds we came face to beak with the incredibly noisy and incredibly colorful Rainbow Lorikeets! Yes, I know what you are probably thinking “But TK, Your not meant to be in the exhibits. But TK Didn’t you get told off? But TK!” Whoa! Stop with your questions, dear reader, and let me explain. We were allowed to go in with the Rainbow Lorikeets to feed them! Feed them nectar to be precise. As soon as we stepped through the door, Mum was swarmed by the Lorikeets (She was the one with the food after all!) and one landed gently on my head. Sadly, it flew away before she could take the picture! Finally, we went to the Handling house and saw a python, chameleon, Giant Millipede and a Golden Orb Spider!

OOOHHHHHH! Now we are getting to the cool stuff! The Safari! There were quite a few animals in the safari so I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves. Pictures are worth a thousand words after all so enjoy! TK
