I Got To Feed A Rhino! Meet Mechi! [VIDEO]

Thanks to our friends at Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville, several of us DJ's were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the park. One of my favorite things we were able to see and do was meet Mechi. She's a 3500 pound rhinoceros at the zoo and we had some major interaction with her! Carsyn was able to go along on the trip and to the surprise of all of us... we were able to feed her! What an experience, right?!?

Here's some video of Carsyn and I, along with Eric Cornish of WKDQ, Bobby G of WGBF and Ryan O'Bryan of KISSFM. We had a blast! Oh...none of us were prepared for how she'd take the food from our hands... SO cool!
