Even Cute Animals Bite – A Visit to Sheep World in New Zealand

Sadly, even cute animals bite.

We know this from the warning signs at Sheep World. Yes, I actually did go to this totally tourist destination about an hour North of Auckland, New Zealand.  I was joined by hubby, my niece from Chicago, my Kiwi neighbor and my friend from Australia.  We are quite a contrast in backgrounds, but we all had a blast.

As for the potential animal bites, we didn’t worry about it.  They were really cute animals so we got our bag of feed and away we went down the path.

We were quite a bit early for the sheep show, so we had plenty of time to stroll around the grounds.

First we ignored the initial sign.

Then we started feeding the animals.  Well, not all of us.  My girls were in schools so they missed out, my neighbor and Aussie friend chose to have a cup of coffee, I am the photographer, hubby had a valid excuse for not feeding them although I can’t quite remember what it was.  So, left the entire bag of food form my niece.

She was thrilled.

And not a care in the world.  I mean how can you even imagine being bit by an alpaca, a bunny or a lamb.  What about donkeys, pigs, or sheep?  How about the ducks?

Well guess who found out first hand that cute animals bite.

Now for the real guessing game for this Silly Sunday – Which one of these adorable animals bit my niece?

Which One of these Animals Bite?

PS – Lot’s of drama here – it wasn’t actually a “bite.”  More like a nibble.  No, even less than that . . .

      They were all so cute, but I agree – I wouldn’t trust them either – but I didn’t want to take away any of my nieces fun. As for your guess, sorry not the bunnies.

      It wasn’t the emu. It might have been, but she is a quick learner and by this point already knew to keep a bit of cautious distance.

    I’m guessing the emu.
    Your niece is really pretty and I can very much see the family resemblance. She’s a lot like you and Melissa

      Sorry, it’s not the emu. I can see the resemblance more in the photos. There are a few more of us in the family. No question we are all related when we are together.

    Those lamb are adorable, I couldn’t picture myself that they could bite, I think they just want to eat. Although I admit it, sometimes the cutest animals are the most aggressive, just like the swans, they are beautiful and elegant but very unfriendly and aggressive, they protect their territory really hard. Once I have been bit by one, although I only wanted to stroke her.
