Eighty different species reside at the sanctuary. As most of them are exiting their hibernation state and beginning to get active for the warmer months. Black Pine houses four tigers from the Netflix show “Tiger King.”

However, they recently got new residents that visitors can see this season. They are 4-year-old wolfdog hybrids Minco and Karma, Snow Macaque Leo, Winona the Woma python and Gideon a blue-tongued skink.
