The Little Zoo That Could

While we were in Alabama, we found out there was a little zoo nearby with animal encounters. It's called the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, and their claim to fame is that they were featured on Animal Planet. In 2006, The Little Zoo That Could aired. It focused on how the zoo maintained itself following several hurricanes that destroyed much of the gulf coast.

If you visit, know that it's a small zoo. That doesn't mean it wasn't great though. There's lots of animals to see and a few exciting encounters. Seasonally, there are chances to hold baby alligators ad kangaroos. There's a lemur encounter, where you can cuddle and play with lemurs. There's even a chance to play with baby tigers!

We decided to take advantage of a chance to hang out with lemurs. It was only ten dollars for our session. The lemurs were very friendly, and one of them was really interested in my camera. We found out they were all named after characters from The Land Before Time. Below, is Ducky:
