Montgomery Zoo comes to FPK

Last week we had the most fun visitors come see us! Members of the Montgomery Zoo staff brought six of their beautiful animals to visit the students. They learned so much about the star tortoise, cute little furry sugar gliders, Redd the Military Macaw, Albus the Wild Turkey, Homer the Ball Python, and Chelsea the Patagonian Cavy. What amazing and different creatures God made each of them each to be! I think the two favorites were the tortoise and the wild turkey. We learned that parrots (Military Macaw) can live to be 90 years old, so don’t purchase a parrot for a pet unless you are in it for the long haul! 🙂 The Montgomery Zoo staff did an amazing job with the animals and teaching our students lots of interesting facts about each one.
