Tortoise eating fruit during Google Meet presentation

A tortoise named Rosie eats strawberries during a live animal show for Green Meadow Elementary School presented by Uncharted Wild.

Green Meadow students learned all about animals on Friday as they watched a live animal show from their classrooms. The show was hosted by Adam from Uncharted Wild and it featured a variety of animals including an African giant bullfrog, a chinchilla, scorpion, lizard and two pythons.

At one point, he set a tortoise named Rosie on the table with a pile of strawberries in front of her. Rosie immediately started munching on the fruit as Adam taught students more about reptiles.

During the presentation, which was streamed through Google Meet, students learned about different types of animals, where they live in the wild, what they eat and how long they live. At the end of the presentation, students were given the opportunity to ask questions.

Special thanks to the PTO for sponsoring this program!
