We decided that it was just unacceptable to not see a moose in Maine, so we cheated. We went to the Maine Wildlife Park and saw three moose! 2 females and 1 male. Also in the park were bears, deer, coyotes, peacocks, turkeys, eagles, hawks, raptors (birds, not dinosaurs like I had hoped), turtles, snakes, and more. It was misting outside so we basically had the whole place to ourselves... Well, except for a small family with very loud children. Speaking of which, Honey boo-boo and family just checked into the hotel we are staying at, and they are LOUD. Good thing we are checking out tomorrow! :-)
The bears were pretty funny. The brown one was pacing when we arrived so we threw down some of the food you could buy for them. He gobbled it up and looked at us for more. In the face close up, he looks just like my dog! The black bear was having his afternoon siesta when we arrived. Clearly bears wake up as slowly as teenagers. He ambled over, sat down, yawned, layed down, then got up to much a few goodies.
This family made me insane! From the moment they arrived the kids were running around the parking lot yelling and screaming - all day. The parents hung out in their rooms with the doors wide open and were loud as well. I never figured out how many of them there actually were, but it looked like 20 and sounded like 50.
