Here is one of my favorite education ambassadors at the museum!
This is DJ. He is a common chuckwalla, one of our education animal ambassadors here at the Cook Museum of Natural Science. His job is to help guests learn about lizards! He participates in classes, Live Animal Presentations, birthday parties, Fun Days, and other events we host here at the museum.
DJ is generally very easy going and doesn’t mind the attention. He likes to be up high, so when I take him out of his enclosure he sometimes wants to run to the top of my head! He likes warm soaks when he is shedding and hangs out on his hammock in his enclosure. One of his favorite treats is strawberries!
