All these animals could be walked on a leash.

We weren't allowed to take photos because it would scare the animals.

... stopped and had a homemade popsicle at the Hypo.

Then we went to the St Augustine Wildlife Reserve. It looks after big cats and lions. A lady bought a lynx for a pet but it was too rough and so she kept it in her garage and just threw it some food now and again. So they rescued it and care for it now.
