On the Left of the photo is Marley and to the right is Sativa, and they are both White-Handed Gibbons! Today we caught them “Monkeying Around”. Also if you notice above them is a new play dome jungle gym that we recently installed in there. They really enjoy using that thing! These primates can really teach you a thing or two on how to really play on a jungle gym. In the wild, Gibbons spend most of their life in the tree-tops and swinging from branch to branch ( The term is called brachiating). To view more photos of Marley then visit Marley’s Gallery OR to view more photos of Sativa, then please visit Sativa’s Gallery.

Padah is our (Red Tabby) Bengal Tiger Cub. As you can see in this photo, she was very focused in on sneaking up on me and pouncing on me! Of course this is just her way of playing and is also her natural instincts of her just being a usual Big Cat. She shares a large enclosure with our other Tiger Cub “Shanti”. You can meet Padah in person on a private tour here at our facility! Check out our Tours Page for more info.
Chico, came to ZWF as a rescue when he was a tiny little newborn. Chico was found by someone and was turned in to us where we had to syringe feed him round the clock, and give him attention! Now, Chico is a big healthy full grown Squirrel! Chico is very sweet and friendly and loves to hang out on peoples shoulders. To view more photos of Chico and how much he has grown then visit Chico’s Gallery.
Now isn’t this an odd animal pair! Here we have one of our lion cubs, playing with our baby mini dachshund! They play together most of the day, both of the lion cubs and our little dachshund. It’s nice to see different animal species getting along together! Although they play together for now, it should be known that when the cubs grow a little larger, unfortunately they will not be able to play together anymore, but in the meantime its a very cute thing to see! To view more photos of our lion cubs then visit Abu & Simba’s Gallery. If you’d like to see them in person, then wny not take a private tour at our facility!? We do tours by appointment only and you can view our different packages on our tours page.
