Animal Adventures at the Hopkinton Library

Snakes, and wallabies, and alligators, oh my! The library was transformed into a petting zoo on August 16th. It was all part of a presentation conducted by Animal Adventures, a Bolton based company dedicated to educating the public about various exotic animals. Educator Dan Gavin was on hand to show off and teach the eager kids all about the animals.

For the many kids that packed into the library, the highlight of the presentation was actually getting to interact with the animals including a skunk (deskunked of course!), and even an alligator!
