Meet Baby. Baby is a seven-foot boa constrictor who lives at the Beardsley Zoo. Baby has a friend named Darth Gator, a baby American alligator that lives just around the corner, also at the zoo. Along with Marlena the iguana, Baby and Darth Gator will come hang out with your kids, and some animal education ambassadors, at a program called Slither into Spring. After the educational segment in which kids will meet the slimy zoo buddies up close and personal, there will be hot chocolate and cookies by a fire.
