Circle of Wildlife Carousel

(Waterfowl Lake)

Sixty-four animals in all have been carved by Mansfield, Ohio-based Carousel Works and installed in a new pavilion in the newly designed Circle of Wildlife area at the Zoo. The animal figures are grouped together on the carousel according to their natural environment, including African grassland, tropical forest and tundra. The carousel company also created eight custom animals that don’t appear on any other carousel it has built, including an Anatolian shepherd, lynx, cardinal tetra (a species of fish), ocelot, ring-tailed lemur, loris, emperor penguin and fossa.
