After a short visit to the Holy Park.
We sat for an hour to get to Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo.
It is a smaller zoo then the Safari World. First thing to do is to have the buffet lunch which has been arranged for us.
And these are the main attractions. Elephant fighting, Put your head into crocodile mouth, take photos with tigers and so on.
I blog about this yesterday. These are the two lovely tiger.
And we sneaked behind of the tiger and take photos. You can tell from Kay Kay’s eye when he feel scare. That is why I need to carry him.
The first show seating.
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!
And now, it start to get freaky. An empty net catch a bird from the air.
All eyes are focus on the magic show now.
OK. Where is that man? Why he cut him into pieces? No blood?
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.
Kids now start to give all kind of excuse, reasons, explanations. All non scientific. hahaha
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.
Open the box, the magic man pops up.
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.
This is the white elephant.
I love Thailand.
Now they are playing soccer.
I wonder how long they need to train the elephant to do so many tricks.
Lastly, a grand display of the war.
Using elephant to fight the war. Notice that they all uses real swords in the battle and actions.
Here are the chances to touch elephant.
Of course, Kay Kay is afraid.
Let’s take a quite photo.
Next we off to see the crocodile.
The two brothers, Mr. Lan and Mr. Lan is playing with the crocodiles.
They are very daring.
They put hand in their mouth.
Wah… very old spinning thing…
Oh… the photos are free. 100Baht take photos with the Tiger. So cheap. S$4 only.
Jay Jay feeding banana to elephant. This is called “No Look Feed”.
There isn’t much animals display there. But there was this monkey, when he got scared, he do some funny scaring face.
Let’s feed the elephant.
It’s time to sleep.
This is a great place for you to have lesser visitors, and got higher chances to take photos with elephants, tigers, and crocodiles.
Strongly recommend it.
