Godzilla, one of our bearded dragons, is famous for napping in random positions.
Check out this previous post about his strange napping habits.

Interns Jamie and Jessica finished their work with us last week and gave us a goodbye present.
We were happy and impressed with our present:
We’ll miss Jamie and Jessica and wish them well at their summer internship sites (Jessica is heading to the Western NC Nature Center in Asheville and Jamie is heading to the Knoxville Zoo).
Our current interns have been mentioned a few times. One of my favorite things about having interns is when they have been here awhile and really relax and let you see who they really are. (actually I think these two were relaxed from day 1)
I walked into the office the other day and witnessed this…
Wait for it…
Our interns, Jamie and Jessica, have less than 4 weeks left in their semester with us. I can’t believe their time is ending. They’ve finished their training with our education animals and can now work in the rooms on their own.
They’ve been doing great and we’re happy to have them here.
Our Interns, Jessica and Jamie, have started their enrichment project. They are interning with us Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays they take classes. for one of their classes they have to do an enrichment project for an animal. They decided to work with Henry, our woodchuck, to see if they could get him more active. We’ll report back (if you want) later in the semester to see what they learned, but in the meantime, here are some photos of what they built and their first day of watching Henry with their item:
Henry watches from his bed at first
FYI- I went back and checked and only one of the whiffle balls is still hanging up. Seems like he’s been having some fun.
We’re fortunate again to have two wonderful interns from Davidson County Community College with us this semester. Jamie (on the left) and Jessica are in their first year in the Zoo and Aquarium Science program. They’ll be with us until mid-April. Say hi if you see them around.
