Summer Visiting Animal Program

Summer Visiting Animal Program

The Burlington Science Center is looking for homes for some of its animals over Summer vacation.
--Gerbils (easy-low care)
--Box turtles (eats salad and live insects)
--Gecko (eats live insects-shedding issues to be concerned with)
--African Clawed Frogs (eats hand fed worms)
--Tarantula (eats live crickets)
--Salamanders (must be hand fed crickets with hand or
tweezers)
--Possibly cockatiels (messy; high care; needs to be a
teflon/non-stick cookware, scented candles, sensitive chemical
free house)

Still waiting back to hear from people so there is a wait list for these animals:
Hamster (easy-nocturnal)
Guinea Pig (large cage and lots of supplies-high care animal; one is elderly)
corn snake (eats mice-needs to be kept in freezer)

--The Science Center will provide cage, STARTER food,
shavings, and care sheet for each animal.
--Call Ms. Pavlicek (781)-270-2928 or e-mail
pavlicek@bpsk12.org asap if interested.  
--Animals are distributed on a first come, first serve
basis.  
--All animals must be picked up by June 14th making an

appointment with Ms. Pavlicek. Thank you.
