Animal Wrappers


With so many different animals in the world, how do we tell them apart, and how are they all related? Discover the characteristics of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Children will be "tested" by classifying the live animal guest.

Wild Pets


We've all seen snakes, turtles, lizards, and parrots at the pet store. But do these wild animals really make good pets? What about ferrets, chinchillas, and rabbits? Join us to learn which animals could and which animals shouldn't be kept as pets. Includes live animal demonstration.

Learn all about these spineless wonders and why they're so important in the animal kingdom. Includes live animal demonstration.
