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 red-eared slider is native to the southern United States and northern Mexico. Red-eared sliders get their name from the small red stripe around their ears and from their behavior of sliding into the water. They are semi-aquatic turtles, and in the wild, will commonly be seen basking on rocks, logs, or other surfaces above the water. Red-eared sliders can make good pets because they are an invasive species in the wild. However, keeping them healthy will require time, expense, the proper habitat, quality food, and veterinary care.

The pink cockatoo is the most beautiful of all cockatoos, who are smart and social. They are native to Australia, where it makes its home in the arid inlands. They can live up to 75 years in captivity when treated well. The cockatoos require a lot of socialization and interaction with their owners.
