Come on out and interact with our ducks, goats, rabbits and llamas! goatFUN FACTS ABOUT GOATS Goats use straw to scratch their backs. Goats are extremely picky about what they eat. Goats are great swimmers. A goat makes an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 jaw movements per day. An average goat will consume 490 pounds of hay during a typical 90-day winter. llama FUN FACTS ABOUT LLAMAS Llamas are members of the camel family. Llamas are smart and easy to train. Llamas live to be about 20 years old. Llamas don't bite. They spit when they're agitated, but that's mostly at each other. Llamas are highly sociable herd animals and need the companionship of other llamas or pack animals. ducks FUN FACTS ABOUT DUCKS During molting season, ducks lose feathers and can't fly for about a month. A duck's feathers are so waterproof that even when the duck dives underwater, its underlayer of feathers stays completely dry. Ducks are found in both fresh and salt water. Ducks are related to geese and swans but have shorter necks and wings. Most male ducks are silent and very few ducks actually "quack". Instead, their calls may include squeaks, grunts, groans, chirps, whistles, brays and growls. bunnies FUN FACTS ABOUT RABBITS A rabbit's teeth never stop growing. Rabbits can purr similar to a cat. A 4-pound rabbit will drink as much water as a 20-pound dog. Rabbits can jump 36" and higher. A group of rabbits is called a herd.
