I have always loved animals, and love visiting the Wildlife Learning Center. Imagine my excitement when I found out that they were offering an interactive adult zoology class for five weeks! Last week was my first class, and of course I took some photos to share with you all. We started learning about the different animal classifications, starting with insects such as the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach:
This Indian Stick insect:
And this scorpion (I did not touch this little guy):
We moved onto learning about amphibians by looking at this African Bullfrog:
And then moved onto learning about reptiles like this baby American Alligator:
We then learned that birds are closely related to the reptile family, and saw this blind screech owl that was rescued:
The softest little animal that was brought out for us to learn about was the Sugar Glider, a marsupial (there were actually four rolled up in a blanket, I was able to catch this one as he got out -- yes it had to be held so that it wouldn't glide away):
And out night ended with a showing of this grey fox:
I look forward to the next month of classes. Thank you to the Wildlife learning Center for offering this type of outreach to adults, and for doing great work!
And thank you, as always, for stopping by!
