|Lilah and Abby learn about caring for a snake from Dr. Louise Conrad|
Birthday celebrations come in all varieties.
Recently, Abby Garrett (on the right) was treated to a behind the scenes tour of our education animals by Dr. Louise Conrad, Ijams veterinarian.
Abby learned how all the Ijams education animals from fish to snakes to turtles to owls to one bashful opossum are cared for and how each has special needs.
Abby loves animals and Ijams. Joining her for the birthday outing was her seven-year-old cousin Lilah Von Gruenigen.
