Some beautiful ZWF photos to enjoy!

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Here are some lovely animal photos taken here at ZWF by Jim Winters of NikonMiami. The above photos are of one of our Hairy Armadillos, and our new Cougar Cub, Cyclone! We have a wide variety of wildlife at our facility and do tours by appointment. The great thing about our tours, is that you get to interact with the animals as part of the tour instead of just seeing them from afar. Animals always put a smile to anyone’s face, and a private tour here with our wildlife is an amazing experience. To learn more about the tours we do then visit our Tours Page for more info.

Baby Hairy Armadillos

Baby Hairy Armadillos

One of our long term captive female Hairy Armadillos gave birth on Friday, July 8th, 2010 to two babies males.
They are known for having a leathery armor shell. Our female came from Paraguay. In the wild they live in grasslands, plains and steppelike areas and is an omnivore.
The carapace has eighteen strips, with eight of them being able to move, while the others are bound to each other and immobile.
Our babies have to be one of the cutest things we have had the privilege to see born at our facility.

What do you do when it’s too hot outside?

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Swim with a buddy! In this case it was Titan our tiger!



We recently  put Titan in the pool for the first time, so that he can get used to swimming, and it was a very hot day here so it was a little treat for him to cool off! At first, Titan was a little cautious, and wanted nothing to do with the pool, but then as we got in and started splashing the water it really drew his attention over and he wanted to play with the water, after a little love and guidance, we gave him a little tug, and Titan was in the water! The minute he got in he LOVED it! Titan started swimming around, jumping off the steps so he can swim towards us, and at one point he even went to the deeper side with me, while he was swimming right behind me. We were so proud of Titan. Now that Titan is used to the water, we will be doing this on a usual basis. It’s great exercise too! To see all the photos from Titans swimming adventure then click here to see us swimming with the tiger!
