Animal Spectacle for Kids to Enjoy

Farm Animals and Birds Became the Spotlight

Kids tend to connect with animals easily. Therefore, we decided to visit the Carolina Kids Museum’s outdoor area where children may interact with farm animals and birds in Puerto Rico. Though this spot is known as a “Mini Zoo”, it is mostly a mini farm.

A variety of ducks welcomed the adventurer kid once he began his exploration. Then the kid was entertained by one of the main attractions: feeding the goats. The adventurer kid loved being the center of attention as he was carrying oatmeal and the goats were very hungry. A very cute brown goat was one of the highlights―it did not stop asking for oatmeal, was posing for the photo shoot, and was extremely nice.

It was interesting to see the goats and sheep harmoniously cohabitating with roosters, turkeys, pigeons, and ponies. The farm animals suddenly surprised the adventurer kid since a distinctive orchestra began its musical act: diverse animal sounds amused everyone. A rooster became the lead singer, and flew and landed on the top of the gate’s fence―what we interpreted as a symbol of the rooster’s guardianship over the farm. Three goats met the rooster at this spot to show their solidarity. This event was definitely a photo shoot moment so we exhort you to explore this article’s photo gallery.

Afterwards, the adventurer kid walked towards a pony that was eager to eat the oatmeal, and did not want to share the food with the goats. However, the pony, the brown nice goat and a black and white goat happily posed together for a photo shoot, astonishing the kid.

Following an encounter with a rabbit, the kid looked at how a pig nurtured its offspring―a beautiful scene showing four baby pigs suckling milk from their mother. A few steps forward, a small shy turtle and giant sulcata tortoises, also known as African spurred tortoises, were on stage.

While in another area, the adventurer kid shouted: “Look, look”. A stunning peacock (“pavo real” in Spanish) began a spectacular show: spreading out and showing off its enormous blue and green tail feathers, and majestically walking on an imaginary runway surrounded by beautiful green scenery. As these feathers were pulled down, the peacock continued its elegant walk until it flew to the top of a fence where it posed as a grand finale. The kid was amazed at this scene.

Another ecotreasure discovered was a lovely baby duck that won the adventurer kid’s heart. He will cherish meeting this duck for a long time.

During the kid’s farewell to the mini zoo, a toddler goat approached him. The kid hugged the goat: a scene that represented the perfect closure.

We exhort parents to allow their kids to bond or admire the animals of their preference, leading the way to create their own farm adventure at the Carolina Kids Museum’s Mini Zoo. The hours of operation of the Mini Zoo are: Wednesday- Friday, 9:00 am-4:30 pm, and Saturday-Sunday, 10:00 am- 5:30 pm.
