Down low hookups in wheeling wv

opinion

Birthdays in recent years have followed the same formula as many of our other trips: Down low hookups in wheeling wv year was different.

The booking process was fairly straightforward if a little clunky; online we were presented with a list of animals and a choice of several timeframes. We had to settle for a Friday encounter as there was no weekend availability in April we typically avoid taking days off work if we can help it.

We agreed to the terms and conditions presented on the page, paid in advance, and that was that — we were going to meet the otters and red pandas!

Flirt wildly about how hot...

The evening before our encounter we flew into Pittsburgh, PA, which is the nearest major airport. On Friday we left Pittsburgh with plenty of time Down low hookups in wheeling wv make it to the zoo, and Down low hookups in wheeling wv about twenty minutes before it opened even though we encountered some traffic.

With such a short amount of time to kill, we simply walked around the area near the entrance and settled in to watch a small herd of deer grazing in the nearby meadow. At opening time, we joined the line that had now formed at the entrance. Zoo admission is included with your encounter, so once we made it to the ticket Down low hookups in wheeling wv we were instructed to head to the zoo office and check in.

The check in process was simple, and mainly consisting of us verifying our personal information and signing a waiver. The woman at the desk was beyond excited for us and also a little surprised that we had traveled all the way from Florida to their zoo. With a couple of hours to go until our encounters we explored the rest of what the zoo had to offer, starting with the small train ride through a portion of the park.

We felt a little out of place, being the only childless adults on the train, and barely fit into the row together. The train served as a nice view of the front of the park, and we got to see the zebra and reindeer up close. It was only well after we deboarded the train that we realized there is an upcharge to ride. We walked the oval-shaped path through the zoo, stopping to look at all of the animals along the route.

What's Happening

Finally the time arrived for our encounters, and we set out for the office to meet the keepers, one who had many years of experience at the zoo and another who was in training. When we scheduled the encounters online, we chose a 1: No matter, though, as long as we got to meet both animals we were happy. We first disinfected our shoes in a container, and were provided with gloves to wear when feeding the animals. The weather had warmed considerably by this time, and both red pandas were out of their outdoor habitat and inside their indoor areas.

We were led into a small concrete block building and each red panda was in a separate area, with a closed door between them. Amber perked up when she noticed the apple slices, and before the keeper could instruct us how to feed her, she had already snatched the apple slice out Down low hookups in wheeling wv my hand with her paw.

She had both a sweet tooth and a sweet temperament; she reminded me a bit of my twenty-year-old family cat. We soon progressed to feeding her grapes and raisins, which Down low hookups in wheeling wv was also very excited about.

Michael and I took turns feeding her and enjoying being up close to this impossibly cute creature. The keeper showed us how to hold our hands a little further away from her face so she would reach out for our hands with her paw. Though her claws were sharp, every movement was gentle and intentional, and we loved the feeling of having her reach for us.

All three of us half-heartedly participated in this enrichment; Michael and I wanted to feed her from up close and she also seemed happier to eat right out of our hands.

Finally she tuckered out, and we were going to attempt to interact with Junjie, the younger male. The keeper informed us that Junjie was still not quite Down low hookups in wheeling wv board with encounters, and that he might choose not to interact with us.

He was let out of his enclosure to walk around the main area to check us out before deciding. Thankfully he was excited about our encounter and chose to spend time with us, a lot of time in fact.

We could see a huge personality difference right away. Amber was slower and more methodical, while Junjie had a decent amount of rascal within him and spent a lot more time walking around. He also was less hesitant in going for what he wanted, even standing up and placing his front paws on my leg to reach for the grapes in my hand which left the cutest paw print on my pants!

For the red panda who took months to warm up to the idea of encounters, he certainly has it down pat. We spent the better Down low hookups in wheeling wv of an hour interacting with these sweet, heart-warming animals, and honestly I could have stayed with them all day.

Our time came to leave, though, and off we went to meet the otters.

Our encounter with the otters was vastly different than the red panda encounter, enough that I might have wondered if I ended up at a separate zoo. Instead of a warm, mellow, and intimate experience, our otter encounter was a bit like running the meter dash — already almost over before it begins.

We were paired up with a different set of zookeepers, Down low hookups in wheeling wv of which was also in training. Immediately the otters were out of the water begging for food, not unlike a dog. As soon as we tossed one of our fish toward the water, they were in and back out, standing in front of us ready for the next fish. I found this incredibly cute and humorous, and it made me want to Down low hookups in wheeling wv even closer to them, which, of course, was impossible.

While the keeper again ordered the otters to stay back, we retreated into the concrete building adjacent to the exhibit. The keepers dutifully answered a few of our questions, and we were then back out into the main zoo area. From start to finish, our otter encounter lasted about twenty minutes. After that, we explored a little more of the indoor animal exhibits, and headed back to Pittsburgh, pinching ourselves in awe of our amazing day.

If you go… There are quite a few places in the U. Lodging is available at the resort, if you wish to stay on-site. Book your encounters well in advance as popular days and times may sell out, and the animals are only allowed to participate in a limited number of encounters per week.
