Early on a Sunday morning we paid a visit to the Living Treasures Wild Animal Park. Located just east of New Castle, Pennsylvania this park has over 70 different animals.
Their claim to fame is you get to get up close to all of the animals, with opportunities to feed many of them carrots or peanuts you buy in the souvenir shop.
As with a zoo, I am always torn to visit places like this – it is great to see the animals but you feel bad for them in their cages. But alas – we went and had a nice time taking photos and feeding them carrots. Feel free to correct any misidentified animals (they do have a nice website with photos and profiles of all of their animals)
Green Winged Macaw
Ring Tailed Lemur
Scottish Highlander Cattle
Cockatiel (I think)
African Crowned Crane
A butterfly (not really part of the zoo – but it was so still on the dung pile it made a great photo)
Cotton Top Tamarin
The next two were in the petting zoo – I even took photos of the signs and deleted them. Feel free to update.
Egyptian Fruit Bats. I took the photo and flipped it over to better see them.
The monkeys knew enough that when you put carrots in their bucket they pulled the chain to get them.
Eurasian Eagle Owl
You have to scratch where it itches. We had a good time at the park, but glad we were there just when they opened as by the time we left there were a number of people there and the animals I think had had enough carrots for the morning.
