One of our favorite assemblies of the year is when Mr. Bob comes with his
animals from all over the world.
I loved our set up this year because I think the kids were able to get closer to the animals.
Our kids were ready for the action!
The first animals from the Amazon lives in this terrarium Mr. Bob is holding.
Inside the terrarium were poison arrow frogs.
These would kill anyone who touched them.
I don't think you can actually see them - even with my super zoom lens!
Mr. Bob always talks to the kids about great science vocabulary words.
He had a great conversation about warm and cold-blooded animals before he brought out
the next animal.
It was a green iguana that has a third eye and is a herbivore.
He also explained what exotic was.
Mrs. Murphy was getting a little too close the iguana for her liking.
Mr. Bob also talked about what the word "invasive" meant in regards to animals.
When this next animal was brought out, Mrs. Murphy and I took off to the
opposite side of the gym from him.
It is a red tailed boa constrictor.
This animal has no eyelids or ears.
Mrs. Kim and Ms. Melodie actually got close enough to touch it.
I had to use my SUPER lens to catch ALL of these shots!
Even Ms. Lisa got closer than I did!
The next animals was the green Amazon Parrot.
This animal put on a show!
It talked, laughed, tried to fly, and carried on for the rest of the show!
Mrs. Becky's favorite was this little guy -
a white nosed coatimundi.
This animal is part of the raccoon family and is an omnivore.
It is just a baby and was just precious!
Mrs. Kim enjoyed feeding it.
The parrot was NOT happy that everyone was paying the coatimundi attention
instead of him.
This was literally the look we got!
This little guy was busy, busy, busy.
It was hard to get good pics of him!
I finally put my camera down when this little one paid me a visit.
It was just adorable and I was ready to take him home with me!
Thanks for the pic, Mrs. Shelby!
