Many in Northeast Texas and Southwest Arkansas consider themselves animal lovers, but when you move beyond the realm of dogs, cats, and the occasional bird, you step beyond the day-to-day experiences of most in this area. It is hard to believe you are still in Bowie County when entering the property of Tara and Brian Whelchel in Redwater, Texas. The electric gate slowly opens revealing the beautiful hidden habitat of a multitude of exotic animals that somehow seem to be exactly where they were always meant to be, surrounding the Whelchel family’s newly built home.

The sights, the sounds, the smells—all invoke memories of past celebrations with family and friends and promises of those to come. Traditional remembrances, both secular and religious, round out the experience as the new year approaches.
