A PLAYFUL group of baby animals enjoy a spot of rough and tumble at a Florida zoo. Kangaroos, tigers and gibbons would never form friendships with one another in the wild, but at Dade City’s Wild Things, the baby animals are encouraged to interact. From feeding to changing nappies, zoo director Kathy Stearns and her team are kept busy looking after their adopted fur children. Like all babies, the animals demand a lot of affection, but as well as competing for Kathy’s attention, they are equally happy playing with each other.Unlike animals raised in the wild, animals born in captivity don’t have the same survival instinct that turns them into dangerous hunters.
