Viewing your T13 reminded me of when I used to get Safari cards (remember those?) in the mail as a kid. #13 on your list cracked me up.

I love the look of flamingos...they always look so glamourous

Angie said...

Great list! I think #1 would scare me the most. Then again, 13 is kind of scary too!
Have a great Thursday!

ROFL love the tourist!

The flamingos are gorgeous. You know, being a born-and-bred northern gal, I never knew flamingos were real birds. I thought they were just a type of lawn ornament... til I went to Florida on my honeymoon and saw a real one for the first time. *G*

Ah well you live and learn, right? ;o)

I'm so glad everyone enjoyed the animals. Yeah, the flamingos are gorgeous. So are the egrets if you see them in person. I've never seen a manatee in the wild. The alligators give me nightmares.
