Parc Safari is a fun place to visit in Quebec, near Montreal. Visitors drive around and the animals come right up to their vehicles to be fed by hand from the little boxes of food they sell at the entrance.
As always, we weren't sure how Eric would deal with this new experience. We were careful to seat him where he could see everything, but not be right next to an open window with nothing between him and the animals.
Eric was fearless. He put us all to shame. Animals stuck their heads right inside the van, rooting around for food, drooling, and sporting big teeth and weirdly long tongues. The rest of us (both parents and both brothers) were grossed out and fearing for our fingers (as well as the condition of the van). Eric had a blast.
