On March 25, 2014, about 20 kids ranging in age from 6-12 gathered inside a classroom at the Friendly Center, many of whom have never gone to the zoo or have an opportunity to experience animals up close. The unique meet and greet was a special preview of animals that will be featured at the America’s Family Pet Expo, April 25-27 at the OC Fair & Event Center. With her menagerie, which included a Flemish Rabbit, Ball Python, Opossum, Turkens, (a breed of chicken),  Savanna Monitor Lizard and Bearded Dragon, Cheryl of Wonders of Wildlife wowed and entertained the kids with her display of scaled, feathered and furry friends, all of whom were rescued or surrendered.
