We had a great day at the zoo today. This little girl was at first, solely interested in seeing a “hippomepotamus”, but upon learning that no such beast would be found at the John Ball Zoo, became fixated on seeing the snakes. At the gift shop she wanted to buy all the stuffed variety, although the sparkly pink and purple was the favorite.

I’m thinking of making a few myself:The necktie snake looks promising (found here)

This one is real cute too (found here):
