Santino's Wildest Dream Comes True: He Holds an Alligator

We visited a Reptilia Zoo at the Upper Canada Mall today. I loved this idea. Kids couldn't get enough of all the lizards, frogs and snakes.

Santino fell in love with a few snakes and a caiman, a tiny little crocodilian. But the pinnacle of this visit was the alligator! Santino held it, and touched it, and all he could talk about after that was that he wants to have a big crocodile at home.

Oh, I just hope he forgets about this idea soon.

Trying to be a caiman. This little crocodilian didn't move for the time we were there. Santino enjoyed simply staring at him.
