There are new and exciting things to see, including a wallaroo which is a blend of a wallaby and kangaroo.  Gia, a female camel, will be visiting along with Gunther who has always been a favorite. Camel rides will be available for a fee. There will be a menagerie of other animals from a two-toed sloth to a spotted skunk. There are opportunities to learn about life on the “wild” side from the experts that take care of these beautiful creatures. Reptiles will also be there and are in a separate exhibit located on the farm grounds. There is a corral of goats, sheep, llamas and alpacas ready to be pet and photographed.

Flutterby Faces will be helping children become exotic creatures with her face-painting skills for an additional fee.
