Mouflan sheep are native to the <iddle East.

Patagonian cavies are a new addition this year. They will weigh in at about 30 pounds and resemble giant rodents with ears and fur like a rabbit. Once they get acclimated to the zoo, the cavies will be out for viewing. Rare white Elk that have blue eyes, a snake den, young of all varieties and species, petting area, playground, a gift shop, antiques, car collections, picnic area, extreme pizza and more. There is plenty to see and do, spending the day.
