Animal Ark is north of Reno, NV. We had been there in the summer, but never in winter. We found out that Animal Ark was opened for two weekends in the winter of 2017 .
The Reno, NV area of Nevada had received a lot of snow in the winter of 2016- 2017. At one point Animal Ark didn’t know if they would be even able to open on Martin Luther King weekend since there might have been too much snow!
We decided to go up and we had a blast, but boy were we cold! It was so neat to see the animals be active instead of hiding in the shade like they do when it is hot.
We were seeing a lot of cottontail rabbit ‘remains’ in the enclosures. We were able to watch this jaguar catch this rabbit. The rabbit ran right for the jaguar! The staff thought it was since there was fresh straw, etc put out in the enclosures.
Here is the website for Animal Ark: http://animalark.org/
If you are interested in going it is a good idea to either check out their posts on Facebook or check out their website a head of time.
Until later – Heather
