On Friday, the John Ball Zoo joined us in the studio with a very furry little friend!  The Mexican Porcupine, Bazoo, joined us to help celebrate John Ball Zoo's 125th Anniversary!

Curtis quickly learned that you should not touch the porcupine after repeatedly asking if he could and being told no.  Even though he was told he shouldn't he kept trying to see if he could, eventually resorting to using an envelope to gently pet the little guy.

Bazoo is the only Mexican Porcupine at the John Ball Zoo and he is part of the Zoo's Animal Ambassador Program.

This summer is an excellent time to check out the John Ball Zoo!  All summer long they'll be having events to  celebrate their 125th Anniversary!  You can get all the info on their website.
