Join Animal Embassy for a night-time voyage through the rainforest. After the sun sets in the rainforest, a new cast of characters arrives. Many animals try to lay low while night-time predators are on the hunt, and a symphony of sounds abounds in the rainforest! The jaguar roars; the owl hoots, the boa constrictor slithers through the trees in search or prey, the tarantula strengthens its web to ensnare many of the insects of the night, the tortoise burrows underground to escape the prowling jaguar, the sugar glider hunts for flies and other small creatures, the walking stick cleverly mimics the branch or plant it sits upon to avoid detection. Animal Embassy will bring the night-time story of the rainforest to life with living examples of its many jungle characters! Meet a Red-foot tortoise, a Pink-toed tarantula, a Boa constrictor, a Sugar glider, and more!
