Critter Caravan's visit to Tickles

Kathryn of Critter Caravan visited Tickles on September 25th, 2010.
She brought all kinds of exotic animals to show us. Kathryn brought us three mammals: a Hedgehog, a Chinchilla, an Angora Rabbit. three reptiles: a Bearded Dragon, a Tortoise, and a Snake. Two Insects: two cockroaches.
Not only did we learn all about these animals, everybody got to touch and pet them!
These animals were from different parts of the world like South America ( I got to know one of my kind), Africa, England and Australia. As we learned about each one of them we got to know their habitats, what they like, how they live and how unique each one of them is.
Hedgehogs are spiny on the outside, so you have to be careful when you touch them.
Their spines help protect them from predators!

Chinchillas are SO soft!  They have to take lots of dust baths to keep their fur clean.
Those whiskers are long and cute! 

 Angora Rabbits are also super-soft. You can shear their wool and make a sweater, just like with a sheep!

 Bearded Dragon have spiny scales arranged in rows and clusters. These are found on the throat, which can be expanded when threatened, and at the back of the head.
  Tortoises are shielded from predators by a shell. Tortoise live on land and they can live up to 150 years!

Boa is a large, heavy-bodied specie of snake. From adults to kids we all enjoy holding and wearing the Boa! There were some brave boy who wanted to try on their necks! I could not past that opportunity. The body was cold!
The show ended with a cockroach race. With pom poms we all kept shouting for our favorite Cockroach to win!
 From Adults to kids we all had such a great time learning, seeing and touching. There were so many kids and parents and I am so happy we had such a nice activity for every age. It was an hour full of fun and no one stopped paying attention to this great show. Kathryn is really good with everyone and the animals are so cute.
Thank you to all the kids and parents who made this show so fun. All the kids were so well behaved and were very patient waiting for their turn when we were passing the animals around. 

So, if you are thinking of something exciting and educational for a birthday party, Critter Caravan is a great way to go! Here is the info:
