Little Man's Zoo!

Barbara and I took Olivia to the Little Man's Zoo in Chadbourn, NC today.

Little Man's ZooThe zoo is named for a monkey they used to have. As I understand it, it started as a rescue operation - people get exotic pets and find out they are more than they can handle. Monkeys, for instance, are like permanent toddlers.

3 monkeys

I half expected these monkeys to do the hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil thing.

The zoo has bears, water buffalo, birds, a black panther, sheep, goats, more birds, lots and lots of monkeys, camels, llamas, ostrich, emu, oh yes they're more birds...

I couldn't get a good shot of the bears, but there's one on the Little Man's Zoo website.

This turkey was showing off how big he could be.

Donkeys, a Zebra, and a Z-donk

Donkeys and a zebra - and the one on the right with the striped hindquarters is a Z-donk, a cross between a donkey and a zebra.

Critters getting noses petted

Not all the critters here are pettable - but these are.

Island with housing for what?

Out on the island is a little house, wonder what's in there. Zoom lens will tell.

Ringtailed Lemurs?

I think they are ringtailed lemurs.

  1. Re: like permanent toddlers: Yeah, that's probably an apt description-- I have met at least one pet chimpanzee, and she seemed like that. Actually, having a cat is like having a nonverbal toddler, except at least he has no thumbs.
