In addition to 15 outlets such as a restaurant (250 sitting persons), a fast food and a snack bar, a pets and gifts shop, a ballroom for birthdays and special events...

The porcupine has a coat of long spikes to protect itself from danger. He leads a solitary existence during most of the year. It is a nocturnal animal and an excellent swimmer. He has a mainly herbivorous diet but occasionally also feeds on insects, small reptiles and eggs.

Hello March 🌼
#march #spring #animalcity #lebanon
Meerkats live in the deserts and grasslands of the southern tip of Africa. They average about 50 cm long, including their tail. These extremely social animals live together in burrows, which they dig with their long, sharp claws. Living underground keeps mob members safe from predators and out of the harsh African heat. They live in groups and everyone in the mob participates in gathering food, keeping a look out for predators and taking care of the babies.

Animals can provide great opportunities for entertainment and learning. This kind of contact with animals will develop a greater understanding of compassion, responsibility, and empathy. It is important to teach kids to treat animals with respect and kindness. It helps them learn to value one another and it prevents violence.
