‘Animal Tales’ presented at Chipley library

CHIPLEY – Washington County Library continued its summer reading program Thursday with “Animal Tales,” a presentation about creepy critters and how they each serve a role in the ecosystem. 

Local children had the opportunity to interact with various animals, including a giant African bullfrog, an Argentinian black and white Tegu, and a Hog Island boa constrictor, which several children were eager to touch when given the opportunity.

Pensacola-based Animal Tales Southeast Director John Ham spoke to the children to educate them about each animal, also explaining how they used their tails for balance, protection, and movement to survive in the wild.
