Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge

Last month we decided to take Harlan to the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Eureka Spring. It is a habitat for large a cats and some bears. It was a really neat experience and Harlan really enjoyed seeing all the animals. Surprisingly, I have lived in NWA my whole life and never been to this place.

We saw jaguars, mountain lions, tigers, ligers, lions, tigons and a grizzle bear. Some of them were really close up which was great for Harlan because he was able to see those better. We even got to see them feed eggs to some of the lose up cats.

It was a bit chilly so we didn't get to stay as long as we wanted but I have a feeling we will be going back when Harlan gets a little bit older.
