Just a quick and easy drive from the community at Olympus Fenwick is an environmental education center where visitors of all ages can learn about local wildlife and native plants.
We're talking about the Savannah Zoo, and thousands of people walk through the gates every year.
Animals not to be missed include:
Found in coastal swamps and boreal and coniferous mixed forests, Bobcats are medium-sized animals that weigh between thirteen and thirty pounds. Those that live in the north tend to be larger than those in the south, and no matter why they live, their primary diet is rabbit. Bobcats range in color from light gray to reddish-brown, and they are often mistaken for their larger feline cousin, the lynx.
Red-shouldered hawks have broad, round wings and medium-length tails that they fan out while soaring. Adults are colorful with brown and white checkered wings and a warm reddish barring on the breast. In the wild, these birds often fly over forests, and they make "kee-aah" calls to claim their territory or when frightened.
Eastern Indigo Snake
Eastern indigo snakes are a federally threatened species that are named for their bluish-black color. They are found in eastern Georgia and are active throughout the year except for on the coldest days. These snakes typically grow to six feet in length, and in captivity, they live between twelve and twenty years.
Native to the Americas, cougars are often known by other names such as pumas and mountain lions. They're the world's fourth-largest feline, and their legs in the back are longer than those in the front. Cougars have an amazing jumping ability, and they can usually go for long stretches without food.
