Final Summer Tales
Jessica Olp and Kodi Smith from Rolling Hills Zoo joined eager children Thursday morning at the Mankato City Library for the last presentation of the "Tails and Tales" summer reading program. Olp and Smith brought a bearded dragon named Beardy B, a ball python named Zeus, and a couple of African millipedes.
The topic of the program was adaptation. Olp gave two adages to help the attendees know the difference between predators and prey. "Eyes in the front are animals that hunt ... most of the time," is the statement often used to help decide if an animal is a predator. "...
