Class of 2011!!

On Friday the 13th Taryn completed her 2 years in the EATM (Exotic Animal Training and Management) program at Moorpark College and also earned her A.S. Degree.  She has worked so hard in this very demanding and challenging program and excelled the entire time. We are so very proud of her.  She trained a variety of amazing animals and then got to show some of them off to us in the morning during the "Family Circus."
