My Rescue Center

I?volunteer at a rescue center every week. I get to feed toucans and a monkey! I?also get to?clean and organize the shelves. It’s a great experience. It’s so much fun! The rescue center is called Refugio Herpetologico de Costa Rica. There are turtles and crocodiles and owls, parrots and snakes, too. But they don’t let me feed them. The squirrel monkey’s name is Luna and the toucan’s name I don’t remember. The toucan got hit on the neck but not to worry, they’ll fixed him up.

I’ve got some pictures of the rescue center.

This is Luna pulling my hair. It didn’t hurt at all.

This is me holding Luna. Isn’t she cute? She’s a squirrel monkey.

The toucan likes papaya, bananas and strawberries, and that’s what I fed him.

This is the front gate of the Refugio Herpetologico de Costa Rica.

This is a big crocodile that they keep in the rescue center. He’s so big! He ate dogs so the people tied him up on his arms really really tight so his hands got cut off. And then the rescue center rescued him.

This is me holding some parrots on a “T” pole.

This is Luna all by herself. Isn’t she cute? Her back is bright orange all the way down to her tail.

This is me holding a toucan. Do you see the food in the toucan’s beak? Did you know that toucans have to eat every ten minutes?

Hope you like it!
