ABILENE - Today at the Abilene Public Library, Education Curator Joy Harsh from the Abilene Zoo brought some animals to show to the kids.
Harsh had four animals with her including: a snake, giant lizard, rats and a chicken. Over 100 kids came to the library to to check out the animals and hear facts about each critter.
At the end of her presentation, she walked around first with the lizard and second the snake so everyone could touch the reptiles.
Harsh said she loves doing these visits because, "it's important to teach kids from a young age the importance of animals."
