A 21st Century Garden of Eden PART II (by India)

You read Austin’s version but this is MY version of our day last Saturday.

First of all we drove up a steep and curvy driveway.  Then I saw a giant enclosure and I thought I saw a chicken in it.  But NO.  It was a peacock -and pecans.  heeheehee.

I saw a peacock before at a farm with my Grammy but that one didn’t have it’s feathers all the way out.

This was amazing!  I liked when it turned around and it shook itself and you could see the vibrating on it’s back feathers.  With his feathers out, he was taller than my Dad!

OK, so you got to hear all about Austin holding a real meteorite that came in from outer space.  Well, guess what I am holding in this picture?

Real, honest to goodness, prehistoric teeth from a …MAMMOTH!!!

What do you think of that?

And here are some more pictures of things I saw.

Real fossils of ancient nautilus

A toucan -my most favorite bird in the whole world

Can you spot the fake bird?

He looks like he is smiling

And now who knows this song?

“Never smile at a crocodile”

    India, can you imagine if your molars were that big? Boy, would they hurt when they first came in!! And that peacock might be as tall as your dad, but does he drink as much coffee as him? 😉

    Dear India,
    I thought I’d seen enough peacock feathers at Nicole’s wedding!! There is nothing like seeing them in person on an actual peacock. You don’t get tired of looking at how beautiful they are. No wonder they strut their stuff!!!
    Love you and hope to keep hearing and seeing your adventures!!

    Who knew that the mammoths molars were that big. I guess that why they named them mammoths everything is extra large on them. I really love the peacocks if I was there it would be all I could do not to stick my hand in the cage and try to grab a feather. To tempting. Keep up the blogging love to hear your version of things happening
