Submitted Schmog, resident bearded dragon in the ROM’s live animal room

This weekend the ROM will be hopping with live animals and those who study them!! The Animals are out for you to see and touch and there will be some of my buddies from ROM’s very own Live Room. Come to the ROM for Awesome Animal Weekend and it will be like your very own Discovery program, right in front of your eyes! Get up and close to my bud Java, the respectable Bob the ball python, and crazy Zip!! and many more!!

We have some really cool and smart scientists that work in the Department of Natural History. They know a ton of stuff about so many different animals. You will be able to talk to Pamela who tracks Polar bears in the Arctic, Dr. Bob who’s world renowned for travelling the world to find awesome reptiles and amphibians and Amy who has camped in some pretty nasty places just to find new frogs.  This weekend there is no such thing as a silly question.

Awesome Animal weekend takes place this weekend Saturday, May 19, Sunday, May 20 and Monday, May 21
Activities are taking place from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
