That's fantastic Jamas! The red panda looks as if it's enjoying its Jamas encounter.... My wife had a cheetah encounter on Saturday (slightly less 'holding on lap' action) maybe you were there at the same time?

I was there on Sunday.

I'm not sure what other encounter I want to do. What the cheetah one consist of?

You spend about 20-30 minutes inside the enclosure (with keepers in careful attendance) with two Cheetahs. You get to stroke them (NOT their heads) and basically commune with these beautiful big cats - who even purr contentedly. Haven't done it myself but this was Rose's second time - and it is apparently a very moving experience... perhaps with an added frisson of danger...

Congratulations on surviving, I see you got a certificate as well!

Jamas Enright said...

Yes, I survived the horrendous nightmare that was Cute Red Pandas!

Hey!
Is this what you were doing instead of being a cowboy?
If so, good choice!
...
I also see that your photo album says "Red Panda 2014", can your nerves stand another visit in 2015?

Jamas Enright said...

Yeah, that and other things that day.
Just future proofing myself (although I've clearly indicated that I'm not up for another visit this year).
