Meet Lucille Ball Python. This easy-going python from Africa (also known as a Royal Python) has entertained and educated thousands of children in the classroom and on the AdventureMobile, which explains why she often falls asleep while being touched by many hands. Think you can’t pet a snake? Think again. Lucy’s skin feels something like a worn basketball – cool and dry and smooth. Lucy’s favorite pastime? Dozing…with her eyes open… but, don’t be afraid, she won’t eat you. Snakes appear to stare because they have no eyelids. (Aren’t you glad Grandpa does?) And, since snakes swallow their food whole, you’re too big for Lucy’s lunch. Lucy’s favorite food? A supersize ratburger with fries and a soda. Co-workers enjoy the fries and soda, but Lucy gets the rat, tail and all. Yum!
Come see Lucy next week (June 2-6) in her 18th summer on the AdventureMobile and get your Critter Card stamped. You can also log your reading time and pick up Summerfest prizes. Check the schedule to find a stop near you.
