On July 27, 2021, Globe Public Library and Miami Memorial Library celebrated the end of the summer reading program with a live exotic animal show, Jungle Jill Animal Encounters. This event was a fun, hands-on show with several types of animals present. We had a desert tortoise, a turtle, a lavender parrot, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, a blue tongue skink, an ivory ball python, a regular ball python, a legless lizard and an African eagle owl. The audience was able to touch several of the animals, and many children were able to help hold the animals so we could all get a better look. All had a great time.
