Seems like I’ve been lazy as the name of the post, but I’m actually on vacation this week and have a chance to visit Lazy 5 Ranch again.
It’s a privately owned exotic animal drive thru park that offers a 3.5 mile safari through the gently sloping pasturelands of Piedmont, North Carolina. There are over 750 animals from six different continents. We can see these animals from the safety of our own car or ride on their horse drawn wagons, luckily we didn’t make a reservation and they were able to arrange some spaces for us on a wagon ride, this is my best view thus far.
Some animals you can feed them off from the bucket, but as for the bucket stealer like the water buffalo, you’ve to feed them from your hand, and it could be very slimy at times.
A peacock is sitting on her eggs, I’m not sure if the strawberry patch is made especially for her.
A huge Tortoise.
A heart shape pond.
I believed the name of the place came from the 5 sons that they have, but lazy or not, I’m not certain. I think the lazy might be referring to touring the place on a lazy day, like us on this day. This place opens 365 days per year, so there is no holiday. They feed the animals twice a day and what we feed them is only a midday snack, it’s definitely a nice treat, for us and the animals.
