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.

Found across Africa’s hot savannas and open woodland, the ostrich is the world’s largest bird. This flightless bird has a long, bare neck, long, sturdy legs and a bulky body covered with feathers. Ostriches are omnivores, which means they eat both vegetation and meat and they can go without drinking for several days.

Boa Constrictors are one of the largest and most powerful non-venomous snakes in the world. They live in tropical climates throughout most of Central and South America, where they hunt at night. The boa's hunting technique is generally to ambush prey, such as rats, birds, monkeys, or wild pigs. The snake swallows its prey whole.

The brown bear lives in the forests and mountains of northern North America, Europe, and Asia. It is the most widely distributed bear in the world. The brown bear is one of the most omnivorous animals in the world and has been recorded consuming the greatest variety of foods. Adult brown bears are fast, powerful, and top-of-the-food chain predators, preying on anything from rodents to moose. During the fall, brown bears eat practically around the clock, stocking up for the next four to seven months. 
Join us and contribute to build the family bear house and create a better environment.
