Discovery Walk Mural Completed

Here are the additional panels for the Cockatoo Pen's low wall. We chose to do a corn snake emerging from some Swamp Milkweed, near a tortoise and hare-type image, though the rabbit represents a Louisiana Swamp Rabbit. The tortoise is really of an African variety. Since the Discovery Walk area has species from all around the world, we did not try and make it strictly indigenous. The owls. I believe were a common variety, perhaps a barn owl. I spoke with so many visitors that Wednesday (before Thanksgiving) as I was working, I have to admit this panel is not my best work.
