The Big Bend Farm includes animals typical of an 1880s Big Bend family farm: mule, cow, sheep, goat, swine and poultry. Each animal contributed to the family's livelihood by providing labor, materials or food. Stroll the Museum's elevated boardwalks to view indigenous wildlife in their natural habitats. Among the species living at the Museum are the Florida panther, the state's official mammal, and the rare red wolf, once extinct in the wild.
Experience a close encounter with one of Florida’s native animal ambassadors daily at the Chapin Snake Center. Animals include: alligators, snakes, turtles, armadillos, opossums, or birds of prey!
