Our local zoo has a program for schools call Fur, Feathers and Scales where they bring out a Chinchilla, Owl, and Snake for the kids to learn about and get to touch.
She brought out a Chinchilla, we learned that a Chinchilla does not take a bath with water like we do; the take dust baths. They have 60 hairs per follicle and if they get wet they can mold due to having such thick fur.
She showed us how different feathers have different purposes.
Cody got to help her show how long this snake skin is.
We have this wonderful farm park in our area call The Rutledge Wilson Farm Park. Here is a link to their Facebook page. We met up with my brother and his wife and their little girl, who is about 8 months old :) Cody and Abigail share the same birthday 5 years apart, well I guess technically one day apart. His is Leap Year Day and hers is the 28th. So much fun having her and seeing her grow!
One of the groups we are apart of on Facebook set up a leaf hunt at our local Nature Center trails. First we went inside the Nature Center to explore everything in there and then we went on a leave hunt!
