Animals dig into the surface of the Earth for many reasons. In nature, many of these creatures are contributing to the success of others by creating homes for them, tilling the soil, and in some cases even planting the seeds of important plants and trees. Some dig to lay their eggs, others to find or hide food, many to escape the extremes of heat and cold, while some are permanent underground residents.
Children will meet an African Sulcata tortoise, a Hognose snake, a Softshelled turtle, giant Cane toads, a ferret, large rabbit or hedgehog, a Mole salamander, and more as they explore the subterranean realm and some of the animals that call it home.
Dig in with Animal Embassy and uncover some of nature's most amazing creatures! This family program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. For more information contact the Youth Services Librarians at 914-864-0130.
