Boulevard of the Cats - It is here, not Paris, that you see The Boulevard of Cats beneath shade trees that lead to fountains and ponds.

Wild Animals - Over 100 different types of animals on the 10-acre estate of wide-varied plant life, waterways, educational center, cafe and gift shop.

A Tail for a Scarf - The longer the cat tail, the steeper its natural terrain. That's why the zoo's snow leopard-the Ghost of the Himalayas has an unusually long tail as a "balancing rod" & as a "scarf" for its throat against cold.

We also feature: Moose, black bear, grizzlies, Andean condors, 2 bald eagles, zebra, otters, weasels, beavers, bighorn sheep and so much more.
