Lord & Lady


Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata)



Our pair of Mandarin Ducks, Lord & Lady, came to Animal Wonders in September 2018. It is a species that Dan has worked with since he was a child and we really wanted the opportunity to bring this spectacular species to our students. When he's not in his eclipse plumage (the summer months), Lord is in almost constant display mode, showing off his ornate feather. Native to east Asia, the Mandarin Duck is arguably the most beautiful duck species in world. Their closest relative is the just as colorful North American Wood Duck.


















The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer, but when the last individual of a race of living things breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again. - William Beebe, 1906




Animal Wonders

We depend on our programs & donations to help fund the care and housing for our animals, most of which are either rescues or surrenders. We seem to be always taking in new animals that need a home or different situation, their care adds up. If you would like to help support Animal Wonders, it would be greatly appreciated. We are always in need of donations, caging material, lumber, crates, aquariums, straw, & newspapers.
