Since Mother’s Day is this weekend we wanted to say Happy Mother’s Day to our friends and family. We are amazed each day by our animal moms and surrogate moms here at the zoo. Tabitha is an amazing MOM to Tanzie….even when Tanzie does not leave her alone! Auntie Jingles is also a great mom to Tanzie. On Mother’s Day, our moms will get a special treat! We have a lot of new babies here at the zoo including monkeys, aoudads, goats, kangaroos, sheep and so many more to come too! We are asking for large cat boomer balls www.boomerballs.com for our lion cubs as a donation if anyone would like to make a donation to the animals! Thank You!
While the jury is still out as to the best way to help prevent endangered animals from going extinct, all are in agreement that something must be done. [Read more...]
The Lion Cubs are growing so fast! The can be found running, playing, pouncing and wrestling! They are waiting for visitors on opening day…April 13, 2013! They are almost 5 months old and what remarkable growth they have had. They have very different personalities and sometimes will put each other in their place! They will grow to be fierce predators and sometimes they can hear daddy in the distance and will take notice!
The lion cubs born 10/23/13 are growing very fast. At almost 5 months of age, the male and female lion are growing into their personalities and predator instincts. They are very beautiful and are often seen playing tug of war and pouncing on each other! We can’t wait to share them with you. Will you be here opening day on April 13, 2013?
We thought it would be great to share a picture of our Bengal tigers, Kya and Taj at play. Kya and Taj are sisters and came to us as cubs from World Wildlife Zoo in Phoenix, AZ! As you can see they have adapted to our New England weather and enjoy playtime out in the snow. Like many animals, they love fresh snow and can be seen pouncing on each other during playtime!
