Exotic species remind man of the majesty of biodiversity, the intricate order of nature, and the detrimental effects of bathing in honey barbecue sauce. Safely see some of the Earth's most magnificent creatures with today's Groupon: for $14, you get two adult general-admission tickets at Discovery Wildlife Park in Innisfail (a $28 value).
Discovery Wildlife Park acquaints wide-eyed guests with fuzzy animal hosts in a 90-acre, family-friendly zoo. Fauna-fanatics can get up close and personal with trained bears, wolves, jaguars, monkeys, and more, many of which were orphaned or rescued from crisis situations. Take in a show such as a tiger or jaguar presentation in which the cats demonstrate their painting ability, ride a camel, or see movie-star animals. Skunk races and raccoon lotteries are popular activities that demonstrate how the trainers coach smaller animals, and adults can marvel at all three colour variations of the black bear species—black, brown, and white—in one place. Experienced keepers are on-hand to answer any question, from where the monkey did her semester abroad to the porcupine's pick for the next world quill-jousting champion.
