North Georgia Zoo
The North Georgia Zoo's 30 acres have been home to some unlikely friendships. A prime example: three wolves, who grew up alongside a basset hound, now happily greet zoo visitors and even allow a few pats and scratches. These sort of animal encounters introduce zoo-goers to many exotic creatures, including camels, kangaroos, and snakes. The grounds even house the working Paradise Valley Farm, an area ripe for petting with potbelly pigs, miniature goats, and other livestock. And while not all of the zoo's 80 species are huggable, several programs let visitors peer into the habitats of everything from a white handed gibbon to a mountain lion or zebra.
Alligators, fennec foxes, lemurs, and other animals make appearances and refuse to sign autographs during guided tours, which travel by foot and wagon. For a more in-depth education, zookeepers offer a shadowing program, during which participants help feed, clean, and train various animals.
