My ZooMobile experience was very fun. I got to hold the bearded dragon, the chinchilla and the hedgehog. It was nice to see that this experience made the older people we gave the program to smile.

The ZooMobile staff person that I worked with taught me to have the people pet only the back of the animal. I also love the Zoo saying that she taught me: “The owls have acute hearing, acute eyesight, and a cute little face!” Also she said that for us to have eyes that fit us like the owl’s fit him, our eyes would have to be the size of a softball! I would really like to be able to go on the ZooMobile program again.
