On Wednesday, April 19th “The Animal Guy” Bob Tarter presented “Desert Adaptations,” a program about creatures with amazing abilities to thrive in harsh and hot climates around the world. Each of the animals display special skills and physical features that allow them to survive on unique prey, little water, and very few resources. The exhibit included a baby Red Kangaroo, Gila Monster, Harris Hawk, Prairie Dog, and an Egyptian Uromastyx. The two animals pictured above are the Egyptian Uromastyx and the baby Red Kangaroo. The program was funded for Nettie Davis Elementary and Wanda Kendall School by the Unit #9 Academic Foundation.
