What a Blast! Mendenhall Public Library

Children and adults of all ages had a blast at this afternoon's program with MDWF Wildlife Biologist Corey Wright! Corey was very entertaining, as well as educational! Who knew alligators were born with teeth? 82 to be exact! And how can you remember how many teeth a baby alligator is born with? Because it's the same number of counties in the state of Mississippi! Corey brought with him an 11-month-old alligator and a 2-year-old alligator for the children/adults to see the difference in sizes at their ages. In addition to alligators, Corey brought an Indigo Snake, which is an endangered species but is still occasionally found in southern Mississippi. He also brought a Speckled King Snake. Corey was great with the children; even letting the ones who would touch the alligators and snakes. We so appreciate him sharing his love of animals with the children at our Summer Library Program! 

Be sure to join us next week at the Mendenhall Public Library for Animal Tales at 2 pm!
