This is Ken Ham, inviting you to visit our full-size Noah’s Ark attraction in Kentucky.


Many skeptics claim that only eight people would have never been able to care for all the animals aboard the Ark. But there really weren’t that many animals on board. Since Noah only had to take two of every kind of land animal, there were probably only two to four thousand animals to care for.

Noah and his family easily could have managed this number. Likely they would have used some of the same systems that modern farms use today. For example, pipes or water troughs fed by gravity could supply fresh water. And automatic feeding troughs would only require occasional refilling. And sloped floors would force wastes to roll into gutters for easy disposal.

Caring for the animals on the Ark was not a problem.
