There just isn’t anything I could compare to the thrill, excitement, and energy of being in front of a live crowd. It’s one of the things I look forward to every time we are on tour. Whether it’s seeing the shock on people’s faces as we bring out a huge python or knowing that each person leaves with a greater appreciation for all wildlife.
The animals and I were so fortunate to be able to visit so many people this year in the New York and New Jersey area. One of my favorite appearances was at the Waldwick Public Library. The show was completely SOLD OUT!!!
After a show Scooter and I will typically sit at our table and meet what seems like an endless amount of kids. I always enjoy hearing their stories…my favorite so far this year was told to me by a young boy who could not have been older than six. He said he found a sea turtle in his back yard!
It seems like Scooter enjoys the meet-and-greets just as much as I do. Now we’re just trying to figure out how he can sign autographs!
