Children and adults alike  were enthralled with a presentation of live creatures and educational information

by Derek, Wildlife Encounter's Zoo's Director and Head Educator

First the crowd met the "Sugar Glider," a Lesser Flying Phalanger

 

Next was the Whites Frog (actually blue-skinned with a coating of yellow slime that makes it appear green!) It is named after a Dr. White who discovered these frogs.

 

A big hit was the beautiful Jungle Carpet Python. Children who wished to do so could gently touch his skin.

 

 

 

An Argus Monitor

 

A beautiful Moluccan Cockatoo,  "critically endangered & threatened with extinction in the wild."

 

...And by far the favorite, an adorable young Wallaby!
