Zoo Diaries: Simon the Tamandua Takes a Walk (2002)
Jenn and Courtney have earned the chance to run the bird demonstration for the first time. An unflappable performance will help their hopes of getting hired on full-time. But the birds don’t seem to care.
It’s been a few weeks since zoo vet Graham put off the transfer of his favorite animal, Simon the tamandua. The keepers say Simon has turned the corner. Will the vets say he’s good to go?
Most of the zoo’s visitors are happy to see the snakes just where they are: behind glass. That won’t do for Jacklyn. Blind since age five, she’s looking for a hands-on experience with a range of the slithery creatures.
