A source tells the site
that Brad and Angelina have built their children a small petting zoo that includes goats, llamas, geese, ducks, bantam chickens, emus and lop-eared rabbits.
"Maddox and Pax are safari mad and they wanted Brad to buy them lions and tigers, even crocodiles," the source said. "Brad decided to go with a mini farm/petting zoo theme that the twins, Knox and Vivienne, can enjoy looking after as well. They’re in a penned-off area in a field with little huts that the animals live in."
That their kids are interested in animals is not surprising. The family over the years has visited several remote locations that promote wildlife conservation, including the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary
in Namibia. Back in 2010, the couple made a $2 million donation to the sanctuary
in the name of their daughter, Shiloh, who was born in Namibia in 2006.
According to the source, Brad and Angelina built the small petting zoo as a way to bring their kids closer to animals. “Brad thinks it is good for them to learn to look after other living creatures,” they added.
