Educated Animals

Unfortunately, this does not exist anymore. According to the owner of Tiny Town, it was shut down two years ago when the owner had a heart attack and they couldn't find anyone who was able to train chickens in his place.

Clowers' Zoo with IQ

Educated Animals in Hot Springs, AR has re-named itself again and is now known as Clowers' Zoo with I.Q. They've also moved from their old location on Whittington Ave. to the middle of downtown Hot Springs. Their brochure boasts "Ranked #1 by Roadside America as the Nation's Greatest Roadside Attraction." A highlight of the show is the ducks that "escape" from a replica of the Titanic while Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" swells melodramatically in the background. They say they're trying to train a cat for a new part of the show.
