These beautiful creatures come out in numbers at feeding time common and are especially popular at the afternoon feeding time. They are many birds on location as well, parrots, peacocks, sparrows, pelicans and flamingoes. These slithery, scaly guys are not for the faint hearted, yes I am speaking about the reptiles. Snakes,caiman,tortoises, turtles andiguanas. There are a few animals not usually found on island that you would see there, armadillo, deer and agouti.
This is somewhere the whole family should visit together; it can be visited by local and visitors as well guaranteeing everyone a wonderful time. The next time youâre on vacation be sure visit to the Wildlife Reserve. The admission covers the reserve and the Grenade Hall Forest and Signal station, so make and get your monies worth and visit both for the price of one.
The Barbados Wildlife Reserve is located in a natural mahogany wood across the road from the Farley Hill National Park in the northern parish of St. Peter.
Here you have a unique opportunity to stroll freely through the Reserve watching the animals at close range and in their own natural environment. There are few cages and the animals can be observed as they eat, play and interact with the other animals.
