A one-of-a-kind carousel will begin to spin at the Chattanooga Zoo at Warner Park. According to a story in the Chattanooga Times Free Press, All of the animals featured on the carousel are endangered species. Carousel fanciers can soon climb on polar bears, a spotted hyena, and a manatee. The carousel should be open in June.

The animals on the carousel were carved by volunteers at Horsin’ Around Wood Carving, a wonderful place north of Chattanooga in Soddy-Daisy, where people come from all over the country to learn to carve carousel figures. More here.
