The Winter Garden Branch Library hosted a Zoo Mom program, led by Laura Roberts, Aug. 3. Roberts taught the children about her host of exotic animals, including invertebrates and reptiles.
Near the end of the program, the children got to touch a baby alligator and a 12-foot, albino burmese python.
Roberts has been teaching for 15 years and has about 30 years of animal handling experience. She takes her animals around Central Florida for educational programs at parties, schools and other facilities.
