We have a few exhibits that have different species of animals liking together. In the Farmyard, Lightning and the goats share an area. Inside, the water snake and mud turtle share a home. (There is also another mixed-species exhibit inside. Guesses?)
These exhibits are purposeful. However, outside, we seem to have another group of animals co-habiting well together.
We’ve had wild woodchucks living in the bear yard for many, many years. It’s just in the past year that the ‘chucks seem to be bolder and getting more comfortable with the bears. Plenty of tasty “bear food” to be shared by all.
