Fodor's Expert Review 1661 Farm and Gardens

Block Island Zoo/Aquarium

Animals you never knew existed—like the zedonk, a cross between a zebra and a donkey—are on display at this farm, as well as some you did. Camels, llamas, emus, kangaroos, and even fainting goats (whose legs stiffen when they get excited, causing them to keel over) will all gladly munch pellets out of your hand. Black swans stroll about, and lemurs leap around their own enclosure. A herd of gentle alpacas helps provide fibers for the adjacent North Light Fibers textile mill.
