The Wilds ~ Things to Do in Ohio

This was so hard to cull down ~ sorry it is still a very photo heavy post đŸ™‚ I did take over 200 pictures in our over 2.5 hour open air tour so really I did good. Let’s go with that!

We started off in pasture, then went to the Carnivore Center and then drove back through more Hoofstock. One of the main areas of conservation The Wilds focuses on is successful breeding programs for these endangered or threatened hoofed animals so there were tons of BABIES. Let’s start with Baby Wednesday, the baby Bactrian camel. The cute is beyond words.

Bison! They are in the outer perimeter of the facility because the American Buffalo is, in fact, native to Ohio and if it escaped a sully port (those double gates like in Jurassic Park) it wouldn’t be an issue for the environment. Now, that poor buffalo on the other hand, might be a little bewildered. There was also FIVE baby bison in this herd.the wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.com the wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.com This is my favorite image of the day – makes me think of times before we hunted these beautiful creatures from moving trains. the wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.com

Przewalski’s horse! They aren’t able to be tamed because they are missing a chromosome that allows for short term memory, making them the only truly wild horse left and they are severely endangered. Other wild horse populations are free roaming but are from freed domesticated horse stocks (like the American Mustang). Also! There were FOALS! the wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.comthe wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.comthe wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.comthe wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.comthe wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.comthe wilds~things to do in #ohio~thecomynspace.com
