...on my car in The UK 10 years ago :)
at Gatorland Florida. Got a picture of my holding the alligator's face which was taped up. Looking back it was cruel
Why would you NOT sit on an elephant? If I could travel back in time I'd give my infant self a slap.
i did this too, but i do think animals in a circus probably arent treated too well. I made my mind up from a very young age that i wouldnt be back to another travelling Circus tent.

This was at a nature reserve in Africa which, in retrospect, may have had a somewhat lax approach to health & safety.
the dosile ones that look stereotypical... not the big fat quick aggressive orange ones... they scare me

They were taking it to a sanctuary in Thailand, keeping it in her handbag and feeding it fruit. I touched it, it was awesome
touched some big iguanas
touched a massive owl

a tarantula? a dove? a python? one of those?
once i was swimming in the sea and i found a starfish and picked it up.
They're fucking awesome. I love living near Marwell Zoo. LEMURRRRSS >:3

She was standing with her back to a cage that had a black panther in it, when the panther stuck its paw out of the cage - claws sheathed - grabbed her around the waist, yanked her back against the cage bars & held her there for about 20 seconds.
She said the animal keeper just told her not to struggle, the cat was "just playing" and that it would let her go in a minute. Which it did.
a llama mistook my hair for straw and started eating me. It had got me off the ground and almost scalped me before I was rescued.
Many years later I touched a hibernating sea snake in Bali.*
*Not a sex reference.
the problem is, that I cant remember what, perhaps it was a dream?
