This past week I visited the Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium in Litchfield Park, AZ. I’ve been visiting for at least 20 years, and each time I leave I am impressed with the changes from the previous visit. Always well thought out to delight the public, and children of all ages.
On this visit, I saw many new completed projects and postings of new features to come.
Loved Dragon World. Often-dangerous subjects: a photographer’s dream. Meaning many exotic creatures, like a 28-foot-long Reticulated Python, separated from the viewers by thick glass. Watched probably the longest snake move from a long thin line into a relaxed, curled up position. My brother took a video of it. The ever-so-slow movement itself was fascinating, and so was the amazing design.
Wikipedia says, “Like all pythons, they are nonvenomous constrictors and normally not considered dangerous to humans.” Yeah. Right.
We spent three hours photographing many exhibits, but were too tired (and hungry) to continue on to the aquarium area, which is simply humongous. And fascinating. Next week, perhaps.
