Petting Zoo

Used to be the boys headed straight for the treehouse play area, the water fountain play area or the 'farm' and it's petting zoo. Now, the first thing they want to do is watch and pet the stingrays

One particular stingray seemed to enjoy splashing the spectators. I missed the splash, but caught the reaction Jake and others had.
Here are some of the rays. The barbs on the tails have been clipped off, so there's no danger in touching them. In fact, the biggest danger is probably to the rays - kids grabbing the fins or tails or spreading germs to them.

There were some big ones, small ones, dark ones, light ones. There were also some small sharks and some horseshoe crabs in the tank.
