I have already told you guys that I'm going to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's at the end of the month, and I feel that its not fair that I advertised all about me going here, in SoCal, so I thought I would post a link for you guys, who live all over the place, so you can see when they will be coming to a city near you. For instance, many of my friends live in the great state of idaho....guess what! They will be in Nampa beginning of Sept :) Click HERE for the schedule
I can't wait to post pictures, but until then here are some fun facts about the animals in Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey....
· A male lion’s roar can be heard for up to five miles.
· Male lions are the only felines that have manes.
· When lions walk, their heels do not touch the ground.
· Lions have been known to live nearly 30 years in captivity and have an average life span of 15 years in the wild.
· The lionesses, female lions, are usually the best hunters.
· Tigers can eat more than 100 lbs. of meat a day. That is like eating 400 hamburgers!
· A tiger can bite down so hard it would be like getting pierced with a nail that weighs 300 lbs.
· No two tigers are alike; their stripes are like human fingerprints, each one is unique.
· Elephants drink 100 times more water than humans do. That is like drinking 800 glasses of water a day!

· When elephants swim, they use their trunks like snorkels!
This show has dragons in it!! I can't wait, I think Jack (my son) is going to flip :)

· The dragon is the largest known flying creature.
· Dragons have shiny scales covering their whole bodies, just like snakes.
· Dragons have a third lung that stores methane; they use this lung when they want to breathe FIRE!
· The dragon measures in at 22 feet — that is more than five times taller than Paulo!
· The dragon in the show has nearly 2,000 scales that were each hand-sewn.
· Building the dragon took close to 5,000 hours of manpower over two and a half months.
