Buffalo may not be too common in Mississippi, but the state is actually home to a huge herd of the majestic creature. And since the herd resides in a park, you can visit and learn all about them. But it’s not just buffalo you’ll have a chance to come face to face with. The park is home to hundreds of animals, including several exotic species and reptiles! Take a look:


Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo is open Monday – Thursday 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Friday – Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information, call (662) 844-8709. You can also visit the park’s website or Facebook page.
