Deussen Park Outreach: Smart Animal Series

We sure learned a lot last Tuesday at the second program in  the Smart Animal series presented by Deussen Park's Traveling Naturalist...Animals we were able to see and/or touch included a walking stick, a scorpion, a chameleon, a hog-nose snake and a rat too! Some of the animals we learned about were gorillas, who have the ability to learn sign language, and the squirrel who has a curious behavior of dragging snake skins around his home for scent repellant properties to ward off predators. The next program in the series will be  "Animal Arguments" on Wednesday, March 14 at 1:30 pm during Spring Break.  "Animal Engineers" will be the last visit on Tuesday, April 18 at 1:30 pm. These events are recommended for ages 3 - 12 years.
