Many people are not familiar with a petting zoo but they are getting very popular nowadays in many parts of the world, specifically in Europe.
A Petting Zoo is a facility where visitors, especially children may handle and feed the animals. It is a combination of domesticated animals and some wild species that are docile enough for petting, touching and feeding, sometimes also called children’s farms or petting farms. Children interact with animals, such as sheep, goats, rabbits, or ponies, they feed and interact physically and safely.
Many general zoos contain a petting zoo or some other type of animal interaction facility. Many have a mini petting zoo area, providing visitors with wild species such as pythons or big cat cubs.
You don’t need to have hundreds of animals to start a Petting Zoo. You can start with a mini petting zoo; people love and enjoy more direct contact with animals, rather than just looking at them from a distance; more than this… it is therapeutic!
