Cincinnati Zoo brought animal visitors that moved and grooved

Animals move in fantastic ways! An educator from the Cincinnati Zoo brought several animals to assist in his discussion of how animals move in their environments. He introduced the kindergartners to a box turtle named Leonardo and a king snake named Elvis.  Each animal is well adapted to his own environment and has different ways of moving and grooving that help him to survive. Elvis is a good snake to have around because he’ll eat any other snake – even the poisonous ones! Leonardo grooves to a different beat than the king snake, but with his protective shell he has a safe place to tuck and hide when danger approaches.
