I was at the Intergenerational Learning Center in Eagan this morning when the Zoomobile visited the facility. Chris, the Zoomobile Naturalist, presented a variety of interesting animals to her young audience. It included an African gray parrot, a very large cockroach, a blue-tongued skink, and a red-footed tortoise that loves to eat bananas. Each child was allowed to pet the tortoise, Luna, who seems to take all the attention is stride. Chris emphasized some of the characteristics of each animal as she interacted with the children.
The Zoomobile travels throughout the state, so even those who may not be able to visit the Minnesota Zoo are able to share in some of the many assets it has to offer.
