Eyes of the Wild Traveling Zoo
By Jennifer Landrieu
Miss Kim introduced our campers to a chinchilla, hedgehog, fox, dove, and wallaby today!
She explained that Eyes of the Wild rescued many of the animals we saw and now they help educate others.
Campers were able to touch the chinchilla, hedgehog, and dove.
|For every one hair we have on our head, a chinchilla has 60! They’re the softest animal on the planet.|
|This fox lives in the desert
and can hear things up to a mile away.
|When a hedgehog gets scared, he rolls himself into a ball and flexes his muscles to push his quills up.|
|The wallaby used her hands to pick-up her food. Her tail is a large muscle. Miss Kim called it her “Wallaby Leash.”|
|We danced like doves, bobbing our heads, flapping our wings, and walking in a circle.|
