  • First time visitors. It is stated that on the home page, touch and many animals better. Stuff like basic good sense of distance and the animal, watching from afar is not impressive. I suddenly found myself at his feet and or turtle, Peacock. Capybara's area is slowly running time like the healing time out! Also hot springs on the laid back is dying (^ ^) moving in a bus painted dogs and cats between the town and farm area. Because there is some distance to rides like a child might point also. Did enrolls in the strong wind made low temperatures on the day that so cold, could not make the most of all during the warmer months also came to like!
