A Visit To Parrots Of The World
Posted by Francesca
After we went shopping with Martha at The Home Depot, we remembered that Uncle Marc Morrone has a great store called Parrots of the World Ltd., located in Rockville Centre, New York on Long Island. We love visiting all the animals and asked Martha and Uncle Carlos if we could stop there. As usual, we had a blast!
1 Sharkey, I smell so many animals! I can't wait to visit each and every one.
2 Marc and Martha are old friends and posed for a photo. Martha is carrying a special sandwich that she bought at a little place called, Happy Hostess, next door to the pet store.
3 Hey Whiskers! Do you want to play?
4 He looks like a friendly rabbit - how do we get in there to play?
5 This bunny seems to like us. I guess he doesn't know what kind of hunters we really are.
6 As usual, we Frenchies were very popular with the customers, even though we weren't for sale.
7 What have we here? Slow moving turtles?
8 There are even more turtles in the upper case!
9 Have you ever wondered what it would be like to carry your homes around on your back?
10 Oh Franny - take a look at this snake!
11 How does one go about playing with a snake? I mean, there are no arms or legs! Kind of creepy, if you ask me.
12 What have we here? Why it's a white ferret! Like all of Marc's animals, it was very friendly. However, we are hunters, first and foremost!
13 And that is why we are kept on a short leash in this store!
14 Little ferret - I'm really retraining myself.
15 My natural instinct is to go after you, however, you're so cute that perhaps I can learn to be nice.
16 Oh my - Marc has quite a few ferrets. He says they make excellent pets. Maybe we should get one.
17 Marc has beautiful puppies and they wanted to play with us, but the store was so crowded with customers.
18 Of course, there are parrots everywhere. This African Grey was as cool as a cucumber.
19 These macaws were almost too bright to look at, and besides, they did not want to play.
20 So many very colorful birds - and many don't even have cages!
21 Marc's fish tanks are loaded with wonderful creatures.
22 Oh, look at these adorable baby sharks!
23 Hey turtle! Do you want to play with us? Where you rushing off to?
24 We're told that these chinchillas are actually granddaughters of Martha's old chinchilla, Snow White. We can see the attraction - they're so soft and cuddly and beautiful. I wonder if they like to play?
25 I can see some more turtles in this pond.
26 And there are also some colorful koi swimming around.
27 The owner of the Happy Hostess www.happyhostess.com caught us before we left and gave Carlos a quart of his delicious chicken soup with matzoh balls. It smelled really good. Carlos enjoyed the sandwich and the soup.
