More than one hundred adults and children were treated to a special spring break program at Lime Creek Nature Center on Monday. Minnesota Zoo Zoomobile Naturalist Judy Armstrong presented the program “All Things Connected.”

It included a close-up look at animals including a parrot, a ball python, a lizard, a opossum and a Madagascar cockroach. Armstrong also brought snakeskins for the everyone to see and touch.

Armstrong walked through the crowd while talking about each of the animals so the spectators could see them close-up. A couple of the children got to touch the cockroach and snake to see if they were hard, soft, slimy or dry.

Armstrong answered questions about each animal. After the presentation the crowd filed past the python, cockroach and snake skins to touch them.

The presentation was sponsored by River City Kiwanis.
