Have you ever experienced the smoothness of a sea turtle shell or the bumps on a Nile Crocodile's back?  Jesse Rothacker will be providing lots of opportunity for hands-on fun.


Forgotten Friend will arrive at the library in style, driving their GMC Savana

service van, more affectionately known as the Super Green Turtle Machine.


In addition to the live animals in their show, they bring along many touchable items

that are on loan to them through the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

These items include real shells, eggs, and skins from many exotic reptiles.

The touch table will provide hands-on fun for all ages.


Forgotten Friend is licensed to transport exotic animals through the Pennsylvania

Department of Agriculture and permitted to exhibit native protected species

through the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. They use educational

materials on loan from the US Fish and Wildlife service, as well.


They have performed more than 1,000 animal shows for audiences of all ages.
