Latest features (probably) coming to a library near you this Summer!

Coming this Summer!

Meet "Lilly", "Rainbow" and "Dusty"
Our 2014 Summer Wildlife learning series introducing new programs: "Animal Appetites", "Color & Camouflage" and "Dinosaurs Among Us" - and promising to be our busiest Summer yet!  Planning to include many fan favorites from our NHECM animal collection, as well as our new Chinchillas, Yellow-naped Green Amazon Parrot, and Uromastyx, and a few other new faces.  

Critter Feature: Caimans!

It's not technically an Alligator, and it's not a Crocodile, Caimans are a member of the alligator family and live among the tropical regions and rivers of Central and South America.  Our Caiman is a Dwarf Caiman and (only) will reach up to 5 feet, they have heavier armored bodies than other caimans and live among flowing water or waterfalls, eating aquatic critters.  Although Dwarf Caimans are very common, the Black Caiman, a relative, is actually endangered due to hunting and habitat loss and the source of a project by National Geographic to help manage an increase in their native population.
