Before long it was time for our class! We had a great turn out and Fiona at the Zoo was again a wonderful hostess and presenter! The kids really like her.
Our first animal was a bird...the cute (and very tired!!) Screech Owl..
Then we got a special surprise! We got to see and pet a rubber boa which is one of Oregon's native species. Ours was actually the first class who got to see him and he handled is wonderfully! The snakes name...O'look!Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good picture of him.
The next animal was also a special treat! Apparently he doesn't do many classes and we were amount the rare classes to have him! He sure was a huge hit with the class! Our friend the mink!
After the class, it was off to ride the carousel that was visiting for a couple of weeks, then off to find more animals.
We are missing a couple of friends in the picture, but they didn't want to sit still long enough for it!
Dominic decided to play on the safari truck and you can see one of his new buddies behind him..
Then we found something Dominic thought was pretty awesome...
That boy does like his reptiles!
Kaitlyn has decided that maybe working at the zoo would be pretty cool and thinks maybe she should look at wildlife biology. She's also discovered the series "Scigirls" and is having a ball watching all the cool science episodes. OF course, now both girls want to build an underwater ROV...Which is now on our list of things to do this summer.
