Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. Winter has us in a cold chill and the Icy grasp of January is coming to a close this week.

That brings me to the topic of this week’s blog, our resident squirrel monkeys are a great hang in nursery number two.

The Coatimundi

Posted January 21, 2019 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. This week we will enter the world of the Coatimundi. Coatimundi are also called by the names: Hog-nosed Coon, Snookum Bear, and Brazilian Aardvark. That’s a lot of aliases to remember so we will just stick with coatimundi, it feels easier. This native of the southern North American and South American continents is diurnal, meaning it is a day time creature. There are many types of coati, the White-nosed which can be found in on both continents and the Brown-nosed which is exclusive to the southern continent. The coati live in…

We’re open year round so a mild winter is great for our guests. Ok, let’s move on to today’s animal, the red footed tortoise. The red footed tortoise hails from South America. As you can see from this week’s video this tortoise is small enough to be held in one hand. Still it can grow to up to 16 inches in length and that’s pretty…

Greetings friends and welcome to the end of 2018. Can you believe it? Another 365 days and 52 weeks are now in the books. 2018 saw a number of new features in Timbavati Wildlife Park. From our pasture with the aoudad in them to the new goat bridge in the interaction area there was no shortage of new and interesting things to see in them. One curious addition to the Waterfalls area was the bearded barbet. Now honestly I wasn’t even really sure what a barbet was at first. LOL I just knew that the bird scared me a little…

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. If you’re looking something cool to do over the Christmas break remember we’re open most days. Check our website for Encounter Tour times and the days we’re open. This week I figured we could pop on over to the waterfalls area and take a look at our pals the porcupines. Did you know that the porcupine is the 3rd largest rodent in the world? We know the capybara is number one and the distinction of number two goes to the beaver. Another fun fact is that porcupines have roughly 30,000 covering…

The African Penguins Of Timbavati Wildlife Park

Posted November 10, 2018 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this weeks blog. We had a little dustup of snow around here this week and that gave everything a great wintery look. I was feeling so great about seeing the first snowfall that I wanted to jump on Old Man Winter’s train and talk about a wintery animal or two. That took me to our resident penguins, Mama and Papa. Those of you who have been reading our blog for a while will remember these two starring in the Wisconsin State Lottery “Pengwin” campaign last winter. So for everyone keeping score here, penguins = winter…

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. Bit frosty around here this weekend and that reminds me that right now is a great time to walk around the park and see what’s going on around here. Like our little hedgehog friend here. Yep you guessed it, it’s time to lace your chucks up and go collect some rings. I’m kidding but a hedgehog will ball up on you if frightened or even sleeping.   Hedgehogs can be found in Europe, Asia, Africa and they were introduced to New Zealand. The hedgehog or hedgie as it is sometimes referred…

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. This week we’re going to take a look at our mob of kangaroos. Now if you weren’t familiar with the term a group of Kangaroos is referred to as a mob. Our mob of roos are always interesting to gander at when you’re in Timbavati Wildlife Park. Kangaroos are very social creatures. They live in a hierarchy that is governed by one dominant male. This alpha male decides the course that the mob will take as they forage through the outback. The females in a mob will have very close connections…
