As this is the last day of our holiday, we thought we would give Nigel a treat and take him to Paignton Zoo.
He was so excited and totally embraced the experience. He loved the giraffes, even if he said they smelt funny, but we explained to him that it was just nature, and the giraffe would probably think he whiffed a bit too if he got close enough.
The elephant came really, really close, which was a totally awesome and breathtaking. Nigel thought his ears looked like mahoosive naan breads!
And Nigel’s was the crocodile. even though it never took his beady off him for a second…… but I don’t think Nigel’s constant tick tocking did him any favours!
Nigel was very taken by the idea of some of the zoo gift experiences that were available…..
But we think that he might not be eligible because of strict height restrictions, which is put a bit of a downer on proceedings until we bought him a badge with a monkey on, that he had had his eye on.
Perhaps, when it’s nearer to his birthday, we could find someone who would allow Nigel to feed their hamster or gerbil as an animal feeding experience …… we shall see.
