Maine Wildlife Park

We also went to the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray. It turned out being a really great day for it, too. The weather finally started clearing up for us on Thursday. They had some really cool animals to see and there were some that we could even feed. We were hoping to get a closer look at the moose, but they weren't cooperating. But we did see bears and we threw dog food down for them. When we fed the bears, chipmunks starting showing up. They were so cute. They'd fill their little cheeks so full of the dog food. If you look close at the picture or click on it, you can see his chubby little cheeks full of the food. Too cute! There was lots of deer, but my favorites were the baby deer. They'd been found and brought in to rehab. They had 7 babies there. The fish hatchery was lots of fun, because we could through fish food pellets into this tank and the fish would just go wild jumping around to get it. We all thought that was pretty cool to watch. I believe these fish were brook trout. The geese just wandered around through the park. These are a mama and and daddy with their babies. You can see where they're losing their grey down feathers on their necks. There was a gray fox and a red fox. The red one wouldn't hold still long enough for us to get a decent picture, though. The woodchuck was super cute, but this is all he did. The turtle pond was fun too, even though we see them all the time. These were easily my favorite animals there, the baby moose. We were only able to see them for a minute, though. The workers came out with a bottle and they ran inside to eat. I wish we could have gotten a better picture. They were also found and brought to the park to rehab. They were adorable, really! We saw tons, tons more, but this is already getting too long. McKaylie told me this it was her favorite thing we did--that's not surprising coming from her, though. It really was a very fun day. Here's the cutest little animals we so that day! (Debbie and I even had a little adventure trying to find our way home............)
