I know the petting zoo area is supposed to be for kids, but what the heck, we're all kids at heart. One of the most interesting animals in this part of the zoo was the pot-bellied pig. They have so much extra skin and this one had some really interesting teeth, too. I wasn't brave enough to pet it though.
The goats were fun too. I had to ward one off that tried to eat my skirt.
This area was well kept, as were all parts of the zoo. There was no foul odor (or fowl odor either for that matter), and the animals were fairly well mannered -- just right for the little kids and big ones, too.
