2015 was GREAT!  For our 13th year at the Sanctuary, we   added new and exciting things.  Our frog room housed  12 exotic and endangered species, including the mint-green poison dart frog.mint green cropped 1A new native caterpillar and host exhibit was fun and educational   and  we had the coolest, most  wonderful new creature we imagine most visitors had never seen. Here is a hint / a Pokemon card was made of this one and we named him AXOL. We will be back ( better than ever ) in 2016 with all our usual fun and a new exhibit planned that will be as unusual as our AXOL, who by the way,  will be bringing Lotti, his girlfriend when he  returns to the Sanctuary after over-wintering with Mari.
