I've been at the Museum sooooo long - longer than many of our interns have been alive. I do a little bit of everything as part of my job: care for the animals, work with the keepers and other staff, spend time with guests. Lucky me!
I spend a lot of time behind-the-scenes, or here after hours, but if you really want to see me, you'll have to sign-up for a behind-the-scenes program.

  3. I agree with Jill. I think a “mullet” in the crowd would add the needed cultural diversity to the group.

  5. Sorry Dad, we don’t have Suri alpacas; they’re the ones with the dreads. Our 4 girls are all Huacayas. I’m voting for at least 1 mohawk.

I graduated from NCSU(go pack) and have worked in the animal department for about 8 years. Some of my favorites include ferrets and birds. I am also known for my weird obsession with Boba Fett.
I work Tuesday-Saturday in either the Farmyard or inside the main building behind the scenes.

Retro’s Teeth Get a Visit

February 8th, 2013

A while ago, I posted about Lightning getting a visit from the dentist. A few weeks ago our alpaca Retro had to get her teeth looked at too. Her teeth needed to be floated so Dr. Cannedy came and went to work.

Retro has a large under bite, looks like I may need to get my teeth floated too!

A towel gets placed over her eyes to keep her calm and a speculum is put into her mouth so it stays open

He dremmels her teeth while I struggle to keep her still. I learned at this moment that alpacas were much stronger then I thought
