Tupelo Buffalo Park is a converted 175 acre cattle ranch. The original owners’ collection of buffalo grew so much it became the biggest herd east of the Mississippi River. What has now become the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo (the largest zoo in the state of Mississippi), they have an interesting collection of exotic animals and an extensive petting zoo.
Despite the variety of animals to feed, goats were the animal of choice. Giraffes are intimidating, miniature horses bite, and camels are snobs.
