Library goes wild

On Tuesday, the Crockett County Public Library hosted a “Wild Things Zoofari,” as another part of the ongoing annual summer reading program.

Courtney Pineda performed the show with four wild animals to display and interact with the audience. Such as: A ring tailed lemur, a genet, a gecko, a three-banded armadillo and a chocolate skunk.

While presenting each animal, Courtney was able to explain the habitat, diet, and everyday lifestyle choices that come along in the lifetime of said animal. Within the show volunteers were able to take part in a staring contest with a gecko, count an armadillo’s shell rings, and even pet a lemur.

Wild Things Zoofari has been committed to informing and raising awareness to animal conservation with each show. Courtney is a specialist in Animal Education and preforms over 400 animal shows in libraries and schools around the state of Texas per year.
