(Interestingly enough, Erica is also the favorite employee of an exotic bird there that was as expressive as Bruce Willis when Erica was out of the room and suddenly became as animated and talkative as Sarah Palin when Erica appeared. You might also like to know that the parrot has a far more extensive vocabulary than Palin!) Erica not only knew the animals well enough to give us all the pertinent information on species and behavior that you might expect, but she knew the animals by name. She could actually tell us the specific
behavioral qualities of individual animals. Try getting that at Animal Kingdom. As soon as we pulled out we saw majestic giraffes off in the distance. At the sight of our jeep pulling away
those animals were galloping with all the beauty of Gale Sayers breaking tackles and using blocks to hit paydirt. Soon they were upon us and sticking their heads into the jeep from which we fed them corn from a plastic cup. Open up those pictures up there next to name and you will see for yourself just close to you the animals at the Global Wildlife Center get. Even when you get the chance to feed the giraffes at a zoo, you don't get this close. They say camels spit more than Sparky Lyle in the bullpen, but the two camels who stuck their heads into the jeep were as polite Jim Palmer giving out free autographs. There was a shaggy camel as well, but the photo of the other camel that I have included (if you would be so kind as to take a look) reminded me of one of the camels that sing "We Three Kings" in a Claymation Christmas.
