biggrin.gif I took my wife to Calderpark when we were winchin. We always laugh at the recollection of watching a baby alligator in a glass cage right up close. Its eyes were wide open and it stood stock-still for ages. The wife was adamant that it was a stuffed dummy and we argued whether it was or wisnae keekin up close for several minutes until it suddenly lunged forward! My wife shrieked and fell over backwards with fright! We never forgot that. laugh.gif

The only zoo ah remember in the City Centre wis Wilson's in Oswald Street. Ah wis in it as a wean - wance. Ah started greetin an had tae be taken ootside. There wis a lion paradin up an doon a cage - no a very big wan either - wi nae tap oan it. That wis enough fur me - ah didnae fancy bein Leo's din-dins. There wis also a big mastiff dug that patrolled up an doon the aisles, but ah don't think it wid've lasted long if the lion had escaped frae its cage.

Would have had nae problem with the lion-he was called Raja-was about 40 years auld and had nae teeth!-Wilson's had tae feed him on mince as he couldnae chew meat-was also probably tamer than the dug as he was a retired circus lion who didnae know he was a lion!
Cheers-Andy Wilson.
