Nighttime Ninjas at the Altus Public Library

An exotic animal expert from the OKC Zoo held a snake for children to pet at the library program in Frederick this past week.

The Southern Prairie Library System is happy to present “Nighttime Ninjas” from the Oklahoma City Zoo. This program continues the 2015 Summer Library Reading Program, “Every Hero Has a Story,” and will be held on Thursday, June 18 in the east side of the Altus Community Center, 401 Falcon Road. The program will start at 2 p.m. and last approximately one hour.

Silent, stealthy spies, a ninja moves through the darkness as quiet and swift as a shadow. Most of what we know about ninjas is steeped in legend, but these heroes of ancient times actually still exist…in the wild. Nocturnal animals must use their super senses, speed, and skill to survive in a dark world. Please join the Oklahoma City Zoo for a closer look at how animals at night survive in low light.

Come learn about animals that are Nighttime Ninjas with the Oklahoma City Zoo. This program was made possible by a grant from the Oklahoma City Zoo FUNd for Kids. The Oklahoma Zoological Society (OZS/ZooFriends) is a 501 (c) 3 and was created in 1954 to support and promote the Zoo and its four purposes of education, conservation, zoological research and recreation. Twice a year, OZS awards grants to schools and organizations to help defray the cost of Oklahoma City Zoo education classes and activities.
