In addition to playful mammals such as pygmy goats, the Children’s Zoo is home to a diverse variety of waterfowl.
During your next visit, take a peaceful moment to observe a black stork. These shy birds prefer marshy areas, rivers, or inland waters where they feed on amphibians, small fish, and insects, wading slowly in shallow water to find prey.
