Adding another family-focused entertainment feature to the list of weekend activities at the Triumph Big Kahuna Atlanta presented by Dunlop Tire and LeoVince, M1 PowerSports is excited to announce the return of Jungle Zoo Experience, an exotic animal petting zoo. While the final casting call of cuddly animals is still up in the air, fans can count on the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of stepping into a cage with a license handler to get their picture taken with a Bengal Tiger.

“Tommy has brought a great entertainment feature to our Big Kahuna events during our years at VIR and we’re so glad to have him back,” said Cameron Gray, CEO of M1 PowerSports. “I’m sure that many fans will have some really cool experiences and will take home some unique photos from the event weekend to share with their friends.”

One of the cuddly creatures that may make an appearance is a Capuchin monkey; an intelligent and recognizable subfamily of monkeys with a history of roles in popular Hollywood franchises including Pirates of the Caribbean, The Hangover, Night at the Museum and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Fennec Foxes, a Coatimundi, a 9-foot long Colombian Red Tail Boa Constrictor and a Siberian Lynx are other likely additions.

“We are unbelievably excited, we love doing the races,” said Tommy Allegretta. “I’ve never been to Road Atlanta, but I did the Big Kahuna events at Virginia International Raceway. I usually just brought one or two animals to those events but we’re bringing more. For the Bengal Tiger, we’ll have a cage with a licensed handler and a 4′ by 4′ table. People will be able to walk in with the Bengal Tiger and get a picture. I’m excited; the people are going to love it. We just want everyone to have a great time and have a lot of fun.”
