Elena Sheppa talks with group from Melborne before going on the tour.

Just over the Withlacoochee River on 98-301 heading to Dade City on Mickler Road is a ranch that started out with cattle, but now specializes in species a bit more exotic.

On the 46 acre property, giraffe, zebras and ostriches roam freely in an area that mimics their natural habitat.  Visitors can choose to view the ranch by Safari Truck, Segway or even by Camel.
