two days ago I visited the Bali Bird Park and the Reptile Park on the road to Ubud. First of all the the parks were much better than we expected. I think we spent about three ours in the parks and had some really interesting experiences. As a student from Udayana University you get a special offer almost everywhere. We had to pay 100.000 each which is even cheaper than the kids price. The bird park was huge and separated in different regions of the world like South America, South Africa, Java and of course, Bali . You can find 1000 birds there and 250 different species. Some of them were extremely colorful, some were good talkers and some looked prehistoric. We watched a show with big parrots and eagles which I also enjoyed. Then I took some pictures with five parrots sitting on my arms and my head and with some other big birds. So, the bird park was nice to visit and we went over to the Reptile park which is next door. We entered the park and maybe 20m later a keeper asked if we would be interested in feeding a four meter crocodile. Of course we were interested and he asked if we would like to feed the crocodile with a living or a dead chicken and we chose the living one to keep it more exciting. The croc was huge and I was really impressed, so was the chicken! Well, it took about five seconds and the chicken was gone. Besides different crocodiles you can find turtles, snakes, lizards and other amazing creatures there. This day there haven’t been many people in the parks and we were allowed to touch some animals without annoying tourists which was great as you can imagine. If you’re interested in these animals go there !!
