PETTING ZOO COLLECTION (PHOTO INVENTORY)

Greetings to you for being privileged to be able to see this hidden page on the website.  

This page is not listed in the menu & will not be. This page is exclusively for your review to see the entire collection of the Petting Zoo. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME OF THE COLLECTION IS FOR VIEWING ONLY & NOT TO BE HANDLED OR TOUCHED BY VISITORS! THESE SPECIFIC PIECES ARE IDENTIFIED & SHOULD NOT BE HANDLED EXCEPT BY BRADLEY OR WITH THE EXPRESS DIRECT AUTHORIZATION OF BRADLEY. 

With the updates for the Petting Zoo, the board has been redone with pictures double sided. There is a laminated list that visitors may see and use to help them identify the specimen. The pictures hanging are numbered and the label list will help them identify any picture of an animal that they are unsure of what it is. 

There is also a double sided printed & laminated “dungeon master” sheet for you when running the activity. Each specimen has a letter key code to identify if as you will see below. The chart provides the code, with the corresponding name of the species with 5 hints per species that you can say to the visitor to help them figure out what animal the fur/hide/skin came from. 

PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THE LINK TO THIS PAGE TO ANYONE ELSE. THIS PAGE IS FOR YOUR EYES ONLY. THANKS!
