Granite State Zoo presented

"A World Full of Wild Tails"

Children met live animals up close and personal, with a fascinating presentation of animals from around the world!

An adorable baby Bobcat opened the show!

 

An Argentine Tegu, cousin of the American alligator, represented the Reptile family --- and South America!
 

An attentive audience was introduced to a young Arctic Fox

who is beginning to grow white fur on his feet and in his ears :

Next, "Fiona," a stunning African Crested Porcupine :

 

Everyone was eager to gently stroke this Eclectus Parrot from the Solomon Islands.

 
And for the Grande Finale....."Medusa" a 145-pound Adult Burmese Python!
Parents, librarians, and a strong youngster got to hold Medusa!

And then, anyone who wanted to pet the Python had the opportunity!

 

After the program, the baby bobcat had a little freedom and decided to check out a librarian!
