Animals inhabit Gardens

Nature's Way opens, is home to 150 species
Birds and jaguars and alligators, oh my!
It was a literal zoo at Cypress Gardens Adventure Park on Thursday as park officials,
guests and local dignitaries celebrated the opening of Nature's Way.
The restored area of the park is now home to more than 150 animals,
including wallabies, muntjac, ducks, lemurs and goats.
The park's most famous resident is Tarzan,
a 75-year-old, 700-pound, blind alligator who starred with
Johnny Weissmueller in the Tarzan movies.
Because the alligator is blind, animal trainers must splash his food
- raw chicken - in front of Tarzan so he can sense it is nearby.
A female jaguar named Sheba also calls Nature's Way home,
moving from the Everglades to Winter Haven to become a full-time resident.
"We've brought the animal component and nature
back to a great park like Cypress Gardens,"
said Kent Buescher, owner of Cypress Gardens Adventure Park.
"It has turned out to be a beautiful, beautiful area
with wonderful animals already here and many more coming."
Many of the animals housed at Nature's Way were purchased from breeders,
while others came from rescue organizations.
