Wildlife Encounters had a huge hit yesterday! Over one hundred people packed the meeting room to see Derek's amazing animals! He brought out a sugarglider, a tree frog, a goanna, a cockatoo (with the shrillest scream I'd ever heard), and the star, a wallaby joey named Kaya. See Flikr if you want to look our pictures in a larger size with descriptions.
We learned that tree frogs have antibacterial/antiviral slime, that goannas don't have ankles, that sugargliders can become their own parachutes and that wallabies are born after only 30 days!
Thank you to all of you who came and enjoyed this program and made it a success!
