Animal Embassy - Spooktacular Animal Adventure!

When: Thursday, October 30, 2014 - 3:45 PM - 4:45 PM
Where: Cos Cob Library at Community Room

The Friends and Staff of the Cos Cob Library welcome Animal Embassy for a special Halloween program to see and discuss some animals that haunt our dreams, make our "skin crawl," and the hair stand up on the back of our necks! They'll discuss animals that are at home in swamps and in shadows and who prowl under the moonlit sky. We will learn about these animals and move from fear to respect to appreciation. Some animals we might meet include the Pink-toed Tarantula, an Emperor Scorpion, a Sinaloan Milk snake, and a Boa Constrictor. Come in costume but don't scare the animals! Call us at 203-622-6883 for further information.
