For some, the beginning of summer isn't Memorial Day weekend but when Animal Adventure opens its doors for the season. If that's true, then let's say goodbye to the Spring snow we've been getting and hello to warmer weather.

On Wednesday, April 27th, Animal Adventure opened its doors for their 10th season in Harpursville. Owner Jordan Patch announced that there will be new species, exhibits, and new adventures as they go into their biggest season yet.

New Additions at Animal Adventure Park In Harpursville

Even before they officially opened on Monday, they welcomed some new residents to the park. It was a cold day so that was the perfect time for the arrival of a male reindeer calf.

Also one of the dromedary camel cows gave birth to a huge Snow White calf. He was so big that he couldn't figure out nursing immediately but everything is going well now.  We are told that we can expect more calves soon.

This season, Animal Adventure will be welcoming Cheetah, Snow Leopard, Tapir, and more. When the temperatures begin to warm up, more of their sensitive species will return too including Alligators, Lorikeets, Tortoises, and Toucan.

So what kind of sound does a Cheetah make? My guess would be a roar or a growl. Would you believe me if I told you that it sounds like a bird? Check it out for yourself.
