[Music] hello everybody hi everyone so today we are going to a zoo actually it's a hotel zoo yes we are gonna go stay at this amazing hotel where you can see animals from your window it's basically like staying at a zoo it's called uh mara safari lodge and it's really cool and it's not that expensive it's more than we would normally pay for a place but like we're only going there for a couple of nights and you get this amazing experience of getting to see the wildlife like from your own window are you excited ruby yeah i'm very excited yeah so it's an hour away from seminyak and about 40 minutes um south from ubud which is going to be the next place we go after what animal do you want to see ruby i want to see a rhino a rhino yeah i hope we can see rhino too and um i i can't wait to see giraffes and we are actually checking out now of our airbnb which we've stayed in for the past 10 days which is a long time and i don't know if it's because of the pandemic and covenant i'm pretty sure that's why but um the place doesn't seem like it's been like lived in or kept up with in like a long time like we kind of had like a horror story happen and i don't want to be too negative about it but um we had like these tiny ants like basically infest some stuff and we had to get rid of a bunch of things from here and um that was something that was totally unexpected and i have not heard of that happening in bali at all like from any of the research that we've done we have heard like that there's like rats and like a possibility of like certain places having rats which i like we understand we understood that kind of uh the ant thing was a new thing for us so um that was a learning experience but we toughed it out and it's over with and now we are heading to our next place which we are happy about [Music] we have made it you guys and it looks so adorable out here just being outside oh you're on your face it's a mirror cat oh yeah sorry it's a meerkat look at it i don't know over there america yeah it is beautiful already just in the check-in area they've got some animals already like reviewing and they're so sweet they gave us these drinks so that we can enjoy how sweet and ruby is just over there trying to shop around so cute look at ruby oh my god she's so cute just trying to haggle over there she keeps asking what this price is and what that place is we finished checking and it was a bit annoying because i had told us earlier that we were going to pay a specific price for having an extra person in the room because we needed an extra bed and they weren't giving us that person because they said oh it's an old price but in the booking like in the messages that i had is that that we had to pay that specific price when we checked in so nowhere did it say that the price was going to change based on the time because we had already did the booking and they were just not letting [Applause] so trying to make the best of it so here's our hotel and we got like a little mini um sets right here in the fridge [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] and then my bed right here what is very comfortable and my favorite part is the view so when we wake up we're gonna see animals all over and there is some over there but it's raining so i think that's why there's not that many animals out here right now but tomorrow i think there's gonna be a lot all right guys so we're heading off to venture around this uh huge lodge safari lodge there's a bunch of different things that they have here like the safari truck you can take around see all the different animals they have they have so many different kinds of animals here they have a like a truck with like a cage on the back that you can like go inside and um like feed the lions and the tigers and all that and the zebras we saw the zebras chasing after it a couple minutes ago then they have like a they have like a water park here it's like it looks like a smaller water park but it looks uh cool it looks pretty cool they have a looks like they had a couple of swimming pools too and they also have a cool like experience here where it's uh it's called like a breakfast or dinner with the lions and you basically sit in front of this huge window while you eat your food and like the lions are right in front of you and stuff so we're definitely gonna be doing that probably a couple times but there's also a petting farm here too i'm not sure what kind of animals they have there but we'll probably check it out [Music] oh my god this is so cool look you guys you can see the animals right by the pool it's like an infinity type of pool that's awesome we will definitely be going in that at some point are we the only one staying here probably that's why they charge this double there's like a viewpoint up the here coming ruby i think he thinks we have food oh my god the rhinos tim they're right there [Music] turtles tim these are turtles how cute they're pig nosed i think turtles teenagers yeah they're so cute [Music] a lot of them yeah [Music] oh [Music] alright guys so we made it to dinner so the restaurant here they have is called sabo lions and um this is this is the cool view that you get the lion he's normally out there roaming around but the lady said right before we got here that the zookeeper took him back to uh check him out or something i'm not sure exactly why hopefully it's to give him more free space yeah hopefully it's feed him and give him water he was definitely uh you could hear him like crying and all that so we don't know exactly how we feel about this place just yet but yeah it's definitely uh it'd definitely be cool to see them and all that they finally let this lion out thank you so much again right there oh my god this is eagle eagle ego oh my goodness you guys there's right there he's literally right next to us oh my god i finally let the lions out first one that came out looked like you wasn't gonna make it the full walk through but uh it's definitely cool to see them up this close but you could definitely tell that they're not very happy as you can tell we're going through a lot of different love hate emotions currently but it is pretty cool to be that close to a lion all right you guys so we have gotten our dinner i got some salmon with some spinach and some baby potatoes i got some margarita pizza it looks tasty and i got fish and chips [Music] looks delicious oh my gosh they're fighting over this little thing apparently these guys are brothers and they were both born here this is crazy look at them they're right there never been so close to a lion oh oh whoa off they go we just got back to our room and they left something very cool for us it's happy birthday happy birthday because it's this guy's birthday yeah yeah look at the little ammo you made a towel with me looks just like me oh stop it dad what is it it looks like me too why don't you say that it's cute how sweet we just woke up to this beautiful view outside of the animals out there just eating and the birds are chirping and it just looks so green and luscious here it's such a nice way to start our morning and also the sun is shining today it's not raining and there's like a little bit of a breeze so hopefully it stays and it's not going to be super super hot and humid because yesterday was very humid and also the camera really fogs up like the lens really up in the humidity and now i'm constantly having to wipe it down so hopefully we don't have that issue ruby's over here in her little zebra outfit yes shoes on the wrong feet yeah yeah they are you're so silly nope no no oh yeah there are a bunch of little caterpillars out here and little miss ruby he's not a fan they're just crawling around look at them they're so funny we're just

indonesia the first animal in indonesia and the owl can turn their head until 135 degrees because they have 14 bones in their neck and it's a nocturnal animal which means they will be more active at night oh wow in bahasa baby means big deer and they call big deer because the male has an upper tusks and it looks like deer antlers that is anoa this is the smallest buffalo in the world and they can be found in the deep ring for rest of salawati island crocodile is the largest living reptile in the world they can reach up to six meters in length and can weigh over a thousand kilograms as you can see they open their mouth when they feel hot because they don't have any sweat glands or pores just like dogs largest metal on the land we have the elephants right here we have sumatran elephants sumatran elephants is the second smallest elephant in the world after a pygmy elephant from borneo they can weigh up to four tons they spend 16 hours just and they have a long snout it looks like an ant eater but they're actually herbivores they only eat leaves [Music] another one is chilling is equals to five years old kid just hanging there this is the smallest bear in the world also called sun bear yes because they have a mark on their chest and it looks like a sun they have a very long time their tongue can reach up to 25 centimeters oh wow all right look at this so hippo is the third largest mammal on the land after elephant and riding the hiding is shy they spend most of their time in the water to protect their skin from the sunlight oh wow very sensitive skin that's the smallest one the youngest and her name is she is six years old in africa they call the number one killer because they kill more humans than crocodiles yeah they are very aggressive it is because they are protecting their territory and they will attack everything that enters their territory [Applause] i follow those two noses with our lions so as you can see this is the mail line this is our baby drop it's a baby her name is hannah and she's five years old she's having her breakfast see where'd you go so guys we just finished the safari journey here it was uh it was pretty cool there was so many different animals here the guy was pretty informative so it was definitely cool um what do you think sean i thought it was i mean the animals were obviously great i just didn't expect them to have such a small space to roam around so yeah i don't know having mixed feelings about this whole thing like i knew we were going to be at like a zoo i just would have thought like they would have a lot more space to roam especially the big big animals they had just such a small amount of space for themselves and it was really kind of sad to see because it's true what they say like the number one predators in the world are us so watch out now we're just gonna enter the petting zoo oh gosh [Music] giant tortoises they're so big yeah so cute oh he's like a stuffed animal makes you a bunny oh not there oh no no don't be scared you can do it so before we got here we we looked at the like the resort or whatever and it looked like like on the website like the pictures were it looked like the animals were like way more open and had like a lot more area to like run around in some zoos are really really big and they give the animals a lot of space and freedom but some of these animals it's really sad how little space they get here the biggest like one of the biggest animals here is the giraffe and it gets room to wander around and it's like it's like 10 feet by 10 feet like it literally just does circles it circles and circles really sad like we were really excited when we came here because it was it's a beautiful place and all the animals are so close and they look so nice and sweet um but then the more that we started doing things here the more we started realizing that this is really it's just i felt we felt bad like we felt bad for the animals and we felt bad for like being here and paying to like encourage this because the the animals some of them like a lot of some of them do have space enough space for them but then there's a lot of them that like the lions like i feel really bad about that because they they just have this small area and they keep them there so that they come up to the windows and during the dinner time when you're eating yeah and we thought that oh they just bring them here sometimes and they have like a big spot in the back where they can just go and roam and be free but they actually told us that like during night time they didn't take them in so you can hear them all basically all night like roaring and stuff and it's so sad i have never i've never heard like a lion war like that and i didn't realize it until now but i think it i mean it would be better that you don't hear a lion roar because they're trying to tell you something's wrong because they're i'm like i'm saying there are some zoos that are really good about taking care of their animals they give them so much space they give them food like a lot of it and like it just wasn't like that here which is very unfortunate i know we should have just done our research more before we came here um but we didn't do it it's just i guess if you uh like if you don't mind like zoo like stuff like that then i guess you probably wouldn't have a problem with it i guess you might change your mind though when you come here because when you see the giraffe this huge animal like just doing circles all day long like it'll it'll probably change your mind yeah we didn't know it was like this before we came here and again it's our bad for not doing our research and we definitely will be doing our research and everything else that we do that involves animals this is our research just so you know it is a big thing here in bali like an activity that was recommended to us by a lot of people yeah the it seemed like ever since we got here it's just been downhill yeah like the reception our first experience with the people yeah that just adds everything yeah that adds more to the issue just it's a dark cloud's the whole place really but yeah so we are done with the animals because we just want to give them their freedom as much as they can have of it and we're going to go ahead by the pool and just enjoy that for a little bit yes because we're here tonight and then we leave tomorrow and we're going to try to do something that doesn't involve making the animals feel any more uncomfortable than they are yes and i'm sorry if um this was not the type of video you wanted to see we were definitely way more excited about it in the beginning but once everything was revealed we were we don't we didn't feel right like not telling the truth about how it is here and yeah so we just wanted to keep it real with you guys we'll see you in our next video hopefully it will have something a lot more fun and it will not affect the animals negatively bye-bye
