    Up Close & Personal !

    Hi all,

    We visited and throughly enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of Gatorland. We sat down to enjoy the 'Up Close & Personal Show' but got more involved than we expected. I ended up being 'chosen' to stand in the 'circle of safety' and ended up holding a Scorpion - aaarrrggghhhh !!!!(and I have the photos to prove it!). I'm just glad it wasn't some big spider or I would have run off!

    We will no doubt return to Gatorland to see some other unsuspecting visitor be 'chosen' !

    Cheerio, Mo

    Sounds good, I might take a look next trip.
    Not sure I could do the holding things thing, I defintely could not do a spider and scorpions look pretty similar.

    I keep thinking of the James Bond film where I'd have to run to safety over a 'bridge' of crocs.
    Is this where it was filmed?

    Nope, it was filmed at Ross Kananga's Crocodile Farm in Montego Bay on Jamaica.

    Hi all,

    When they put the scoripon in my hand I initally thought it was plastic......until it started to move !!

    Funnily enough - when I returned to my seat - quite a few fellas said they couldn't have done it either.

    Oooerr,

    Mo
