Exciting exotic animal show a highlight of March Break fun

March Break activities continue today and tomorrow at the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library

From slithering snakes to bouncing bunnies and beautiful birds, the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library played host to some unlikely guests Wednesday.

Children were able to get a first hand look at these animals up close and learn about their social structure, habitat, and environment during two packed shows as part of the library's March Break activities.

Since 1995, ZooTek has been presenting personal encounters with some of nature’s most fascinating creatures. This unique, fun, and educational hands-on experience allows children of all ages to be introduced to exotic animals face-to-face.

More engaging and entertaining events are taking place today and tomorrow ahead of Monday's return to school. Here's what's on tap.
