On September 17, 2015, students from Tremont Attendance Center grades K-7 had the privilege to see Ancient Egyptian Animals. This was presented by Amanda and Hope from Wildlife Encounters.They showed the students several different animals, including an African Premature hedgehog, two bald pythons (Curious and George), a ferret (Ms. Nibbles), a sulcate tortoise, a precious black cat, and an African Savannah Monitor. When asked what it was like to travel with the animals, Hope and Amanda both agreed “It is a little stinky at times but still fun anyway.” They also said they make up voices for the animals to make the ride for fun.

Lyla Robinson, Tremont second grader, said the cat was her favorite animal and the show was “good!” Tremont seventh grader, James Allen Vick said the tortoise was his favorite animal.

Tremont Attendance Center would like to thank Amanda and Hope for coming and presenting the wonderful animals.
