Before we left Tupelo, we went to the Buffalo Park and Zoo. I’m not really a zoo-lover, because I don’t really like to see animals in cages.Much of it is like a petting zoo: we fed miniature horses and pygmy goats, an eland (which looks like a cross between a Brahma and a…I don’t know, but it’s a huge antelope), and a giraffe.
Every hour there is a trolly ride around the buffalo park, so we got to see lots of buffalo. The big one is named “Elvis” – he’s *huge*:
The star at the park is a white buffalo, which is very, very rare.
