Jenna and I gathered up a whole bunch of the zoo education department’s “creepy crawlies” and headed over for an early morning visit to the Breakfast Television studios this past Thursday. We joined Jon Ljunberg for an on-air segment highlighting our Zoo Tots program for children aged 3 and 4. Jon is a big supporter of the Assiniboine Park Zoo and we were thrilled to creep him out a bit with some of our less than cuddly but super fun animal friends.
In the picture below, Jenna is holding a rat while I’ve got a giant South American cockroach on my shoulder. We also brought a tortoise, a tarantula, a snake, a skink and giant land snails. We really enjoyed the visit and the show staff were wonderful. I was also encouraged but the large number of people that mentioned that they saw the segment.
