We are going to watch magic show.  OK.  WOW.  A magic show in a zoo.  What does that have to do with zoo again?  Of course, some of the magic act is to deal with animals.

This is the first time the kids ever watch a magic show.  Soon, their eyes going to pop out, and ask why why why.  Be prepared.

And old trick.  Pour milk into the newspaper cup.  And the milk is gone.  Kids started to guess what is going on.

Another old trick, pulling paper box bag from a small paper bag.  Kids eyes were confuse, but they like it!

This is my favourite.  The guy just pour the water into the empty tank.

Then, he catch the fishes from the air and place it in the water where he just filled.  And hmmmm… still no fish.  Cover it with cloth… and then, wala wala, the tank is full of fish.  Please watch this youtube 10 times and tell me what do you think.

The last act of the day.  A man lock inside the box, covered and tied inside a bag.  Magic cloth up, and then magic cloth down, that man is gone, the man inside the box pop outside.

Next show is the elephant show.

The elephant started to pull the stunt.  Now I understand why Thomas bring us here.  Because, they are explaining the history of elephant in ENGLISH.  I see.

No wonder.  It got a different feeling than the Safari World.  Where most languages used is in Thai.

I wonder how long they need to train the elephant to do so many tricks.
