I half expected him and the shaggy camel to burst into Christmas songs as we fed them corn right out of our hand. My favorite animal right now and for the past few years is the American bison. That animal is just such an amazing creature that
it managed to shove my former favorite animal, the penguin, right out of first place. Much to my surprise the Global Wildlife Center had some bison on hand and though conservatives would probably be offended by the interspecies mingling with longhorn steers, I think normal people would be equally amazed at the chance for their kids to actually pet one of the inspiring animals. Look at that picture and take special notice of the intelligence
that you can see in that eye. Near the end of the tour I made great friends with a llama. While the usual case was a murder of animals coming up behind the jeep, apparently this llama was their king. Giving him plenty of space, even those jerk zebras, I had him to my own for about five minutes. He ate from my cup and allowed me to pet him; I never knew just how soft a llama is. What I'm trying to say is that I now desperately want to own a llama as a pet. A private tour, which is not nearly as expensive as it might sound, at the Global Wildlife Center is guaranteed to thrill you and the kids.
