Rhiannon brought us a special friend to meet from the John Ball Zoo today.  It was a 3 inch long Madagascar Hissing Cockroach!  Ewwwww!  Connie, didn't even look at that bugger, but Steve gave it a pet.  Rhiannon was very fun and she even said something naughty on accident that didn't make it on the air, but Steve caught it on video!

Check out some upcoming events at the zoo!
