A white pencil printed in black with a zebra striped car with a lion sitting on the roof next to the words "Warner Bros./ Jungle Habitat/ West Milford, New Jersy/ go on safari...for a day". Jungle Habitat was a drive through zoo that experienced much controversy in its brief four year existence from accusations of animal mistreatment, many reported animal escapes into local New Jersey neighborhoods and the constant risk of injury to visitors who failed to stay in their cars and keep their windows closed.
