"Twas brillig, and the slithy toves   Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves,  And the mome raths outgrabe" (Lewis Carroll). Slimy snakes, scaly dragons, gnawing guinea pigs, slowpoke turtles, and a crepuscular rodent (chinchilla) made an appearance at the Cinnaminson Library. To the delight of a group of children gathered around to test their courage, they had the opportunity to see and feel several animals from Paws Farm Nature Center. The children were introduced to a chinchilla, a guinea pig, a box turtle, a bearded dragon, and two corn snakes. One of the corn snakes was an albino snake, which would be in danger if still living in the wild because of its skin color,  and has found a safe haven at the center. The box turtle was injured so remains at the center. If you would like more information about Paws Farm Nature Center, click here. The headquarters branch of the Burlington County Library has a pass which allows four people free admission to the center. Check with headquarters for availability.
