This is Paprika the Ferret. The center has a number of animals - snakes, lizards, tortoises, guinea pigs, rabbits & 2 ferrets. I never actually met a ferret before & Paprika seemed like an absolute sweetheart. I knew that people kept these as pets, but I'd always been skeptical about how good a pet a weasel could make - well, she's not exactly a pet, but she's a very friendly, curious, and gentle little creature. Assuming you're not a prairie dog, at least. She was on her way out to be the "show" part of some animal show and tells that were part of the day's events.
Estuary Day at Alley Pond Environmental Center Sebago Canoe Club participated in an Estuary Day Festival at the Alley Pond Environmental Center near Little Neck Bay in Queens. We had a table there, and Jerry and I did some demos in the pond - the last of which included the now-infamous Alley Pond Mud Roll.
