With live Animal Ambassadors, we will learn about these amazing adaptations as we meet animals such as a Lovebird, a Red Foot Tortoise, Green Tree Frogs, an Argentine Black & White Tegu, a Ball Python and a Lpng-Haired Rabbit.

Life Under the Surface

Animals dig into the surface of the Earth for many reasons. In nature, many of these creatures are contributing to the success of others by creating homes for them, tilling the soil, and in some cases even planting the seeds of important plants and trees. Some dig to lay their eggs, others to find or hide food, many to escape the extremes of heat and cold, while some are permanent underground residents. Students will meet an a Ferret, an African Sulcata Tortoise, an Indian Sand Boa, a Soft Shelled Turtle, an African Pygmy Hedgehog and more as we explore the subterranean realm and some of the animals that call it home. 

Animals Classifications

Animals come in all shapes, forms, colors and sizes. Classification of life helps us to recognize similarities and to appreciate individual characteristics. The natural world can be divided into its living and nonliving components, and the living can be categorized by certain common traits: number of eyes/legs, lifestyle, methods of locomotion, reproduction (egg laying or live birth), food preference, and more. With this program, students will meet a variety of live animals representing some of the more common life forms on Earth including reptiles, amphibians, small mammals, insects and/or arachnids and birds. Animal Ambassadors will include animals such as an Indian Peahen, a Green Tree Frog, a Soft Shelled Turtle, a Long-Haired Rabbit and a Milk Snake. Students will have the opportunity to observe, touch, and hold select animals as they discover the physiologic aspects that allow us to group animals with others sharing similar features or characteristics.

Talk to the Animals

Students will take a journey around the world with a unique group of rescued animals, representing diverse habitats. Animals have many ways to communicate; Animal Embassy will help children to interpret and even mimic some of them. Students will learn to grunt like a hippo, roar like a lion, or trumpet like an elephant! We can learn a lot from our animal friends if we listen carefully and observe behavioral cues. Animal Embassy will unravel some of the mysteries of animal communication as we meet live Animal Ambassadors such as a Solomon Islands Monkey-tailed Skink, a King Snake, an Eclectus Parrot, an African Bullfrog and a Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula.
