Sulpher Creek Nature Center visited the library on Wednesday.
Melody and Emily got to hear a storybook read about the animals and then actually get to touch them. They got to pet a guinea pig (Delilah) and a duck (Chuck).
Some interesting things I learned:
*Guinea pigs are related to bats.
*Bread is like junk food to ducks! Don’t feed it to them!
A fun thing that we might or might not check out in the future is their lending library. You read correctly, you can “check out” some of their animals for a week. I think they have guinea pigs, rats, mice, and hamsters that you can borrow for $15. They will show you how to care for them and give you all the supplies you need. How neat!
