GREENSBORO, N.C. -- It's an exotic safari you don't even have to leave the Triad to see.
And, the best part: admission is free.
The exhibit includes a petting zoo with goats and llamas; as well as opportunities to see a leopard, lemurs, a baby Bengal tiger, and other exotic animals.
While the entry to the event is free, there are a few attractions you can pay a little extra to experience. The exhibit offers camel and pony rides; photo opportunities with baby lions, tigers, monkeys or a kangaroo; and for a dollar, you can see an adult, white Bengal tiger.
