    Violent owner

    The owner of Blue Tongue is a violent man with zero compassion. He allows the house to fall into unsanitary conditions and if you cross him, he will scream in your face and kick you out. Do not give this man your money.

    noticed there is always a lot of commiserating among people who work
    with the general public. I have to say, some of the things that
    happen make me question humanity. Then you get gems of people that
    make you wipe your forehead and say, 'whew.'

    Back on the job, I rocked out to the
    radio (under my breath because there were other people in the room)
    and mixed up the fruit salad like I said. Mai came back and ...

Australia Zoo is by far one of the best zoos and wildlife places I have ever been to. It was so well maintained, organised and looked after. All ...
