    This must have been a lot of fun! Since we have no car, living in the capital of Ireland, saw never a need for it, it's great to see to have an more interesting use for it! Thanks for sharing!:)

    I like the giraffe sticking its head in the window and licking.

    Monkeys can destroy the car. They like to remove chrome pieces, etc.

    I've only been to a drive through safari once in my lifetime thus far. It was in Indonesia not far away from Jakarta. Though I can't recall the name of the place.

    Yes, fortunately, it was not MY car that they jumped on...I have friends who have gone and had it happen. There is some chrome on part of my car and I would not have been happy had something happened.

    I was in the Everglades recently and saw a sign that I had never seen before: "Vultures may cause damage to vehicles" A number of cars at trailheads had plastic bags lodged into their sunroof, hood, etc I'm assuming in an effort to scare away any birds from landing.

    Pretty incomplete list. I'd think the Galapagos should hvae made the cut, either Finch Bay or Royal Palms.

    I went to Tortugeuro 20+ yrs ago and I had so much fun (with the exception of being the designated mosquito and sand flea magnet). It was not a resort (wood cabins, cold showers), but the howler monkeys, green turtles and an assortment of other animals made it a very memorable time!
