Return to Cypress Gardens Adventure Park Part 2

Now we are heading in to see what exotic animals await us here at Cypress Gardens Adventure Park's Nature's Way.

Vanna points the way.

What is this? This is Nature?

"When Radios Were Radios" is a neat collection of antique radio equipment located in Nature's Way.

This is a not-so-antique goat, probably of the African Pygmy variety.

Lemurs doing what they do best.

This Coatimundi took time out from its busy schedule to pose for us.

This is a marmoset. He was quite a little thing...about 8 to 10 inches tall.

Remember the Wallaby Squash? It was a carbonated lemony soda which only lasted in the soda wars from 1976-1980.

Anyway, here's Bennett's Wallaby. We don't know who Bennett is, but this animal is similar to the kangaroo. Hopefully we'll get a better view of it in the future.

This seagull just got finished taking his bath.

Reeve's Muntjac tries to figure out how we got up there. We don't know who Reeve is either.

This one IS an antique. This is an American Alligator named Tarzan. He is currently 77 years old and makes his home at Cypress Gardens.

He is a retired actor, having been miscast as Cheetah...er...a crocodile in the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movies of the 1930's.

Here's the miniature Loch Ness Monster of Lake Eloise.

Marlon put together a brief video of Cypress Gardens on this visit. Here it is.
