Whoa! Look at those bugs!!Reservation bugs have nothing on the gigantic roaches from Afghanistan. These huge one-half hand sized creatures brought the most squeals and interest from the primary students at TC District’s Dzil Libei School in Cameron.

The Phoenix Zoo and education outreach presenter, Nancy Bohl, paid a visit to Cameron school to show and discuss animals from foreign places. These extension services were provided to the Dzil Libei school free of charge, as a courtesy service from their Phoenix facility through a traveling exhibit called "Zoomobile."

Lizards and furry creatures from all parts of the world had a chance to visit the reservation in an assembly format. Presenter Bohl took each animal carefully from its little traveling cage and showed the students up close what characteristics made it so unique to its native country. Hedgehogs, figure 8 shaped and pastel colored lizards, various insects from Africa were all part of the Phoenix Zoo show.

The traveling exhibit is available for rental in the reservation areas and more information TC Public Relations at (928) 283-1072.
