Once a year the Tohono Chul Park puts on a Park After Dark. As you can see, there were so many docents holding live reptiles, birds, insects, mammals and anything else found in the Sonoran Desert.
Here is a docent holding a Mountain King Snake.
This little snake eats rattlesnakes.
Our friend, Tommy, came with us. (the boy, not the tortoise.)
Here is Luke with his idol, “Karl the Bugman.” Karl was holding and playing with a scorpion! Ack!
This Great Horned Owl is missing an eye 😦
Elf Owl! I want to keep him in my pocket!
Poor little docile brain damaged bobcat. The docent was opened for questions and one kid kept asking, “would it eat us because we are meat?” and “could it kill humans?” ….no and no.
Hazel was there touching all of the animals too but I never got a good non blurry picture of her, so here she is eating some animal crackers from earlier that day.
