Educational excitement with wildlife at Hope Library

Wildlife Biologist Bob Tarter put on a show for a large crowd of local children of all ages at the new Hempstead County Library Thursday . Excited little faces watched intently as Tarter started with a creepy crawly, then pulled out a flying lizard. The fun did not end there as he then found a few more surprises from hidden containers. He brought out a fruit bat, a raccoon and presented the big finale Ell the owl.

Alyssa Daniels, age 9, of Blevins said that everything about the show was ” fun.” When asked what was her very favorite part she said she enjoyed it all so much she couldn’t say. ” It was fun, all of it.”

Daniels said she didn’t find anything about the show scary.

Westin Curtis, age 5, of Spring Hill said his favorite part of the show was the bat. Curtis, however did find one moment of fright.

” It was the racoon. When it crawled down his back, I was almost afraid it was going to jump off his back into the audience,” Curtis said.

The next children’s event at HC Library will be a concert with Brian and Terry Kinder on July 11th.



Children watching the animal show at the HC Library got to meet Ell the owl.
