kidsnake2.jpg Third graders from Hillsboro Elementary School?including Dylan Horton and Elli Weisbeck, shown?visited the Tabor College biology department recently to learn about animal habitats. Tabor science students presented some of the animals housed in the zoology lab. Tasia Johnson presented information about the ball python, red-tailed boa constrictor and the White?s tree frog. Corina Neufeld informed students about the life span and habitat of the African spurred tortoise. Other animals presented were the soft-shelled turtle, leopard gecko, African millipede and gerbils. The HES students were also challenged by Karrie Rathbone, associate professor of biology and chair of the biology department, to find the iguana in his ?habitat? in the atrium (it stays camouflaged in a ficus tree).
