Spring always brings the rebirth of plants, animals, and hope. And in the case of opening day at The Wild Animal Park in Chittenango, lots of cuteness too.  The premier location in all of New York to see the big cats will be sharing some new babies on opening day and a new species of primate.

Jeff Taylor and his crew plan to open The Wild Animal Park on Saturday, April 13. They have lit the fires of Facebook with the announcement of a new species of primates coming to their facilities. The post says they will have the only ones in New York and people are guessing wildly. Here are some of the new babies that will make their debut with the new season.

Other new animals at the park include a Hyena, Red River Hogs, baby Camel, an Agouti, and some special surprises. There are new enclosures too; Hyena, Small-Clawed Otters, Spider Monkey, and Water Buffalo. For entertainment in addition to the bounce houses, they've add Wild Gem Mining.

The park is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m – 5 p.m. and weekends 9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tickets are just $12.99 for adults and $10.99 for kids (Children 2 & Under are free) or buy an annual pass for $39.99. Get more details at TheWildPark.com.
