Meet Goliath the monitor lizard

A brave volunteer with giant hissing cockroaches

Wild animals came to Library Park today, courtesy of Wild Things, Inc. and the Orland Friends of the Library. Animal expert Gabe presented several of his animal friends, including a baby crocodile, a barn owl, a lemur from Madagascar, a kinkajou from South America, two giant hissing cockroaches, and a black-throated monitor lizard from Africa.
