Photo Gallery Friday: Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park in Alto, MI
Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park will open its doors at 10 a.m. today for its fifth season of being open to the public. While it is located a few miles from any heavily populated area, Boulder Ridge continues to grow in popularity for its up-close animal encounters as well as its diverse collection of rare animals. New additions this year include Sable Antelope and a primate facility that includes Olive Baboons. There is a petting zoo area that kids will love, featuring llamas, zebras, goats, kangaroos and others. Giraffes, alligators, lemurs and a tortoise are among the highlights of a walk through the main zoo area while a safari bus ride takes visitors past enclosures that feature various kinds of gazelles, antelope, ostrich, zebras, wildebeests and others. Find Boulder Ridge on Facebook or visit their website for more information. For now, enjoy the photo gallery below (and a couple videos) of some of our favorite animal pictures from our numerous visits.
