One of the very cool things about Busch Gardens (and there are bunches of them) is the variety of animals they have – wolves, lemurs, lorikeets, a boa constrictor, an African serval and many more. This animal fan likes to check out Jack Hanna's Wild Reserve several times during Busch Gardens visits as there are always different animals out and about. You never know what you might see.
