Get Up-close to Exotic Animals at the TGR Wildlife Park
If you want to take a walk on the wild side, head to TGR Exotics Wildlife Park in nearby Spring.
It's home to more than 100 animals representing over 25 species, and is run by Troy and Gwen Scott who boast that "life is a total zoo."
They wouldn't have it any other way, and when the couple adopted a pot-bellied pig in 1992, they had no idea they would soon have an attraction that inspires visitors of all ages.
The animals all have different personalities and dispositions, and those not to be missed include:
Native to Central and South America, Capuchin monkeys are social animals that survive in both small and large groups. Their size varies, though they never grow larger than 22 inches, and they weigh two to three pounds. These monkeys are active during the day when they forage for seeds, insects, and bird eggs, and at night, they're found sleeping in the trees.
Also known as laughing hyenas, spotted hyenas are brown with black spots. They live up to 25 years in the wild and can chase down prey at long distances while running up to 37 miles per hour. These animals typically live in Africa south of the Sahara Desert, and there can be 100 individuals in a clan.
Bengal tigers are majestic animals with an orange coat and black stripes. Males are typically larger than females and can weigh as much as 550 pounds. Bengal tigers are mainly solitary creatures, and the basic social unit is that of the mother with her cubs.
The park is open on select dates every month, and those upcoming include October 29th, November 7th, and November 17th.
