Neat Things In Our Backyard: Brevard Zoo

by Erna Sigurdsson, Realtor

Brevard Zoo logo

The Brevard Zoo is located in Brevard County at

8225 N. Wickham Road in Melbourne, FL

It is only about an hours drive from Orlando, it has many interesting animals and is an affordable option for an activity to do with the whole family. If you have an annual membership at the Central Florida Zoo, the reciprocal agreement between the two zoos allow you for 50% off the ticket price at Brevard Zoo.

Recently we took a trip with the twins to the Zoo and we wanted to share the fun with our readers. Here is our trip in pictures from the Zoo.

Brevard Zoo Petting Zoo Llamas

At the petting zoo, Laura and Kathryn try to talk to the Alpaca's which they kept calling Llama's. They also petted their necks and hugged the Alpaca's.

Hyacinth Macaw

When the girls saw this Hyacinth Macaw, they instantly thought of Blu, a Blue Macaw from the movie RioKangaroo

The Kangaroo found in the Australia/Asia exhibit is munching on it's food.

Pointing at Zoo animals

As the day wears on Laura gets a little tired and wants to be carried, but she is still excited to see animals and eagerly points them out as she is carried by Justin.

White Rhinoceros

In the Africa exhibit we marvel at the White Rhinoceros as he bathes in his water pit. We were looking for the Giraffes, but the day was warm and they wander around. We will use that excuse to go back sometime soon. We had such a great time and hope that you will check out the Brevard Zoo sometime in the future as well.

Buyers Beware Craigslist Scam

by Erna Sigurdsson, Realtor

Craigslist Scams

In  light of recent occurrences relating to unauthorized posting of  listings on Craigslist by someone other than the listing agent, we would like to remind those who are looking to buy or rent Real estate to be careful.

We have seen properties that are currently listed as for sale being put on Craigslist listed as rental properties by scammers and usually listed at much lower value than the normal rent price in the area.

Keep in mind that scammers may be looking to get your personal information as well as your money.

Craigslist has a section on their site about scams and how to avoid them.

http://www.craigslist.org/about/scams.

A recent article shows an example of this problem http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20110606/NEWS/106060322/Growing-online-scam-uses-legitimate-sale-home-listings-trick-renters?odyssey=mod%7Cmostcom
