Play With Wallabies At Hattiesburg Zoo In Mississippi For An Adorable Adventure
Just last year, we told you about the Sloth Experience at Hattiesburg Zoo. As the name implies, the experience allows visitors to interact with a sloth, which is as amazing as it sounds. However, it’s not the only way you can have close-up fun with the zoo’s residents. Thanks to the Wallaby Walkabout, you can interact with wallabies and a few other animals native to the Australian Outback. Take a look:
