Barbara and I took Olivia to the Little Man's Zoo in Chadbourn, NC today.
The 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.
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 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.
Camel wants a kiss.
Not all the critters here are pettable - but these are.
Out on the island is a little house, wonder what's in there. Zoom lens will tell.
I think they are ringtailed lemurs.
