The DeYoung Family Zoo is located in one of the most rural environments you can imaging. Wallace Michigan is a small town with few residents and even less places to shop or eat. However, nestled between the pine trees is the "Wallace" or DeYoung Zoo hosting an impressive array of exotic animals drawn from all over the world.
Big cats, bears, canines, reptiles, primates, birds and other exotics are available for viewing. Sometimes they have petting opportunities were new animals are socialized through contact with other people. As people pet and play with the animals their become more domesticated.
