I do love this town I live in. Really I do. Even with the stalemate that is happening with the building of a new high school and the lack of a grocery store within town limits, I do enjoy it here. Especially our Rec Center. It rocks!! Seriously. They brought in the traveling zoo (they are hoping within a few years to have an actual zoo here in New Hampshire) so that the HeadStart students as well as the preschool playgroup, could enjoy some interaction with animals. So amazing!
I hung around since I'm always up for meeting some new critters. As long as I don't have to touch them, we're all good. Pictures are plenty for me. Especially when she brought out the first animal. A Madagascar Hissing Cockroach. Man that was HUGE!! It was it's full grown adult size and I'm glad they don't get any bigger. Could have done without him but I didn't get too close so all is good. Alex did not pet this critter. Can't blame him.
However the Red Eyed Crocodile Skink was a different story. He wanted to pet that. Such a brave little guy. I again did not partake of the petting. I prefer my animals that I pet to have fur. LOL
This is a monkey-tailed tree porcupine. His name is Thorn. He was so darn cute. No one could handle him, not even the girl doing the talk. His quills have little hooks on the end making them hard to remove once they are in you. Not good for a group of preschoolers!
Trying to get a picture of my kiddo with the porcupine in the background.
It was a good day. Alex really enjoyed himself. I then spent the rest of the time hanging with him and his classmates. Good Wednesday here.
