Interesting fact about llamas…..they Spit!!!

We took the kids to the Birmingham Zoo on Saturday….last minute and random…two words that go hand-n-hand with the Busby’s.   We had a great time and the weather was perfect. 
I loved taking pictures of the animals, especially the ones I could see up close.  They really do amaze me.

Even the pink flamingos, so pretty to look at.
Here’s the crew.
My favorite…the giraffes.
I could have watched ’em all day.
We took a little break for a while and watched the lions.  Didn’t get any good pictures but I was so glad they were right in front of us playing, behind the glass.
And the zebras…so pretty.
It’s kind of crazy though, because our favorite time was with the farm animals.
Look how sweet the pretty white llama looks.
He’s got some pretty crooked buck teeth, but seems friendly.
See, he’s smiling.
Thomas thought he would try and talk to it a little.
Looks like the llama wants to give him a kiss.
Wrong!!  Splat…..right in his face!!  That llama spit right all over his face!!  It was, by far, the highlight of our trip!  Hilarious!!  There were little pieces of straw and a dead bug on Thomas’ face afterwards.   I laughed so hard and the kids did too.  We all saw it!!  Wish the pic wasn’t out of focus but I had to show it anyway.
Guess he was getting pay back for being on his blackberry while we were there. :)
We had fun.  You never know where we’ll go next.

    Jamey - Your camera is really amazing. The colors are so vibrant! (I'm sure the great pictures also have something to do with the photographer herself too.)

    Also, the pictures leading up to, then the finale shot of the spitting, are priceless!ReplyCancel

    Jill - Brooke, I love your blog! You definitely have a talent for creativity. This blog was particularly entertaining to me because I absolutely HATE llamas! I went to a petting zoo at Six Flags when I was 10, got spit on by a llama, and for the rest of the day I smelled like vomit. Llamas are vile creatures. Tell Thomas I feel for him!ReplyCancel
