Why a lemur encounter at Wild Florida might be the best thing ever

Posted by Sam Haught on Jul 21, 2016 1:08:25 PM

Any day spent with animals is sure to be one of the best ever and we’re not just saying that because we spend every day with them! They have a way of making you feel loved, even if they’ve never met you before. All of our animal encounters are experiences you’ll never forget and no two are the same... especially when we’re talking about an encounter with our lemurs. Our conspiracy of lemurs in the Gator and Wildlife Park may not have the best reputation due to their loud vocalizations and scary yellow eyes, but we promise they’re really sweet and filled with energy. So, if you're having trouble deciding which animal encounter to adventure on this time, let us tell you about why a lemur encounter at Wild Florida might be the best thing ever.

6 things that could happen during your sloth encounter at Wild Florida

Posted by Sam Haught on May 13, 2016 9:30:00 AM

When you book yourself a Wild Florida animal encounter, it's an experience like no other... and we're not just saying that because WE think they are awesome. Everyone who has met our sloths, Guy, Ana, or George, during this encounter thinks so, too. 

Just a few weeks ago we had a family who surprised their father with a sloth encounter and his exact words were, "This is the best day of my life!" 

So... What makes a sloth encounter such an amazing experience? How about we share six things that could happen during your next sloth encounter at Wild Florida? We can't promise all of them will occur, because animals are unpredictable, but we can promise some of them will. 

1. Try your hand at feeding Guy, Ana, or George. Sloths love to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, like fresh mango or corn on the cob. It's a good thing they move slow, allowing you to keep a watchful eye during feeding time. One interesting thing to note about feeding sloths is that they can eat in any position – hanging upside down from a branch, curled up inside one of their favorite resting spots, or even latched on to the side of the exhibit, anywhere can be considered the dining table for these amazing animals.
