A Trip to the Ecodrome - part 2

After all the scary animals we encountered some non scary animals: Chickens

Did I just say chickens aren't scary? Maybe I should rethink that comment.

Next we visited an expo about Darwin and there I saw these insect beasties.

Hmmmmm..... no comment.

These scary heads were set up like this to compare the skulls from Java men, Neanthertals, humans and two others that I forgot, one of them was named Lucy I think.

They also had lots of spiders at the Ecodrome.

After seeing the spiders we got something to eat and look what I found on top of my fries!

A pretty purple spider!
I wonder if he followed us all the way from the spider expo room.

After we had eaten we went to the jungle room where there were crocodiles! Here is one of them, he's called Hap.

There also should be an second crocodile named Snap, but all I saw were big fish.

But when we went upstairs I found Snap, he was lying in the sun.

Here I am posing together with my owner.

Outside again I spotted these pinecones. Doesn't it look beautiful with all the snow?

One last look at the Ecodrome and it was time to go as we also had a visit to my owner's mother planned.

When we got there we were just in time to take this picture of the sky before the sun was gone. I didn't even have time to get in the picture too.

After spending some time with my owner's mother we traveled back to Groningen. We were lucky the trains were still going as it was going to snow again. The trip did take longer as usual because of the snow, but we made it home in one piece!

Nice post! Good to see and read that you all came home safe, not only because you have met dangerous animals but also because of the snow!!!

The "No Comment" picture made me laugh outloud. Luckily I wasn't drinking my ginger ale when I saw that one.

@Demented Wench: that's a good thing indeed. I should add that this particular 'piece' won an honorary mention award in a (skeleton)preparation show.
