Zoo School: Rainforests

Tuesday was our last day of school at the Zoo.  We have one more meeting at the aquarium next week.  This week, zoo educators discussed the layers of rainforest: forest floor, understory, and canopy. The kids met some rainforest dwellers: Madagascar hissing cockroach, red-footed tortoise and guinea pig. Then, the kids broke into groups and explored skulls of different animals.  

I do not want to touch the cockroach, Fernando.

We did touch this one!

  

did you know that sailors used to keep guinea pugs on board ships as a source of food?

  

C loved being on the team with the big boys. They had a sloth skull!
