Our Animals

Welcome to Buffalo Animal Adventures, Explorer - I'm Max!  I suppose you're a Human since you're surfing the web; I am a Blue & Yellow Macaw Parrot.  My species can be found in the forest, woodland, and savannah of tropical South America.  We can chat your language if you give us the time to learn.  I get a little shy talking with people I initially meet, but soon you'd see, I'm quite a chatter-box!  Enough about me... check out some of the rest of my friends at BAA!

Our Cast of Creatures represents over 175 different species from all over the world!

Below are only a few of our animals. 

Our animals are posted below on a rotation.  Please call if you're seeking a specific animal that does not appear below.
