Give me a break!!
Now it was cold, VERY cold and my brain may not have been working normally, but, CAMELS in Ohio.
We were at the Wilds, a reclaimed coal strip mine. As well as rehabilitating the area they have a few wild animals.
Camels, cheetas, African painted dogs and rhinos.
The camels are from Mongolia and don't mind the cold.

This is Point Pelee, the southern most place in main land Canada. Pelee Island is a few miles out in the lake.
Not so much banana this year.
In the spring there is a great migration of birds. My favourite is the wood warblers.
