Amazing Adaptations Ever seen a funny looking creature?  Most likely its features play a very important role in the animal’s life!  From dancing prairie chickens to deep sea viper fish with a fin that flashes light, this week is all about the biggest, the baddest, and the best animal adaptations!

Shark Week– Let’s talk about sharks!  Sharks are unique, powerful creatures.  This week we will learn all about the types of sharks and what makes them so awesome.  And since the Blank Park Zoo does not have sharks, we will travel to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo for a special overnight trip!

Myth Busters Can porcupines really shoot their quills? Do whales really talk to each other? Join us as we confirm or bust some of the well-known animal myths.

We will research, write, and record our very own Mythbusters episode that focuses on animals found at the Blank Park Zoo!
