Field Trip - Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch

A few weeks ago the kids and I headed up the road to a little town called Pilot Point to attend Homeschool Day at Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch.

When we arrived we loaded into a tram and were ready to start our adventure.

The tram's first stop was to see and pet some animals I didn't know existed. Such as the Zdonk. A cross between a Zebra and a Donkey!

There was also a Zorse - that's right a zebra/horse!

We were also able to pet some beautiful horses.

The tram then took us to see zebras! We were not able to pet them, though, because though they are beautiful, they are not very friendly.

There were also these guanacos or spitting camels (they looked very much like alpaca).

The tram's last stop was to see and pet some camels!

I can almost hear him saying, "Guess what day it is!?!?!...
Hump day - yeah!"
After the tram ride we had more fun learning all about the animals at the ranch. 
We learned all about lemurs and even saw a 4 day old lemur baby!


We took a barrel train ride...

And went on a scavenger hunt!

The kids even pet a baby kangaroo and a snake!

We all had a super fun day!! Mig has asked me almost every day since if we can go to Sharkarosa today.

We will definitely be going back!
