“What do you think jungle animals do when nobody is watching?” Tucker Turtle asked. “Hmmm, that’s a good question, Tucker,” replied Yaya Yak. “Maybe we should go on a jungle safari to find out.” “I will bring the binoculars!” said Papa Pig.

Tucker Turtle, Yaya Yak, and Papa Pig jumped into their Safari Cruiser and headed to the jungle. They drove down a muddy road, over a big hill, across a deep river, and through the thick vines that surrounded the jungle.

The Safari Crew stopped and looked through their binoculars. “Look over there under the tree, it’s Laura and Lena Lion reading a book.”

“What in tarnation, I didn’t know lions like to read books,” said Tucker Turtle. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew turned and looked in the other direction. “Oh my, it’s Mike and Megan Mongoose playing video games.”

“Holy Macaroni, I didn’t know mongooses like to play video games,” said Yaya Yak. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew climbed up high in the trees and looked through their binoculars. “Over there, it’s Sarah and Susan Spider Monkey playing soccer.”

“Sweet Sassy Molassy, I didn’t know spider monkeys like to play soccer,” said Papa Pig. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew heard a hisssss. “Right there, it’s Kyle, Kiersten, Cole, Casey, and Conni Cobra all playing hide-and-go seek in the bushes.”

“Great Googly Moogly, I didn’t know cobras like to play hide-and-go seek,” said Tucker Turtle. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew climbed down the tree and peeked through the thick vines. “Hey, there’s Izzy, Indie, and Elsa Elephant all playing with little baby dolls.”

“Well tickle me pink, I didn’t know elephants like to play with little baby dolls,” said Yaya Yak. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew heard a smack. “What was that? Oh, it’s Timmy, Tyler, and Taylor Tiger, along with Sammy Sloth hitting golf balls.”

“Well, I’ll be hornswoggled, I didn’t know tigers and sloths like to play golf,” said Papa Pig. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew walked down by the river. “Look, is that Heidi Hippo trying on high heels to match her new polka dot dress?�

“Jumping Jehoshaphat, I didn’t know hippos were so stylish,” said Tucker Turtle. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew felt the ground shake. “What’s that? Hey, it’s Ryan and Rachel Rhino playing catch with a football.”

“Wowzers, I didn’t know Rhinos like to play football,” said Yaya Yak. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew heard loud music. “Oh my gosh, a jungle band! Look up there on the stage! It’s Nate, Nick, and Noah Nighthawk jamming on the guitar, rocking on the piano, and singing songs.”

“And there is Jace, Jake, and Joel Jaguar banging on the drums and doing the boogie woogie dance. Well, bust my buttons, I didn’t know there was a jungle band,” said Papa Pig. “That’s soooo silly!”

The Safari Crew looked up and saw bunch of balloons in the air. “Where did they come from? Hey look, it’s Avery, Addy, Ava, and Adam Ape blowing up balloons for the big jungle party. What in the world, I didn’t know apes like to party,” said Tucker Turtle. “That’s soooo silly!”

“Those jungle animals sure like to have fun! Maybe we should stay for the big jungle party,” said Papa Pig. “The Safari Crew doing the boogie woogie dance?” said Tucker Turtle. “Now that would be soooo silly!”
