meet and greet

It's a splendiferous day to visit Ijams. Today you can meet one of the injured animals the education department cares for at the top of every hour beginning at noon.

Today's featured animals include our albino black rat snake I call Frostbite and Stay Puff our partially blind male barred owl. The Meet and Greets are free but donations are always appreciated. The money is used for the care and feeding of the animals and an adult barred can eat $3 worth of mice a day. Yummy. The snake? About $2 a week.
