|We spent an afternoon at KENTUCKY DOWN UNDER in Horse Cave, KY.|
We paid one price for the little zoo, shows, and a 30-minute tour of Mammoth Onyx Cave. If you like animals, this is a fun place, although it was very hot when we were there, and there is a decent sized hill you need to walk up in order to get into the park. If you have trouble walking up hills, this is not the best option. They sometimes have a wagon to take you around, but it was not running while we were there.
|As you enter the park, there are animals carved out of tree trunks|
|At the animal show: Petting a Cockatoo|
|Petting a snake|
|A picture from inside the cave|
|Demonstration of sheep herding|
|Talking about kangaroos before entering the Walk-About Tour|
|The kangaroos were very tame, and very soft|
|Can you see the joey?|
|Feeding the Lorikeets was a highlight of this park.|
(Be forewarned that the birds may doo doo on your shirt!)

|When you enter the bird area, they immediately fly down and land on your shoulders, arms, and head. JJ was surprised at first, but thought it was a lot of fun. We all did.|

JJ was able to get this one to laugh.
|In the evening, we drove through Mammoth Cave National Park |
and stopped at the visitors center.
