Animal World Experience is bringing their new show, Ani-Motion, to the Worcester Public Library on Wednesday, July 27 at 11 a.m.

Ani-Motion will bring you on a journey as you walk on the wild side, and learn how animals stay fit and healthy. Whether it’s digging like degu, eating healthy like a tortoise, or soaking up the sunshine like a lizard, you’ll learn a lot from these wild animals.

Animal World Experience was founded in 2006, and is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Matt and Melissa Gabriel. The company is committed to the health and happiness of their family of animals, and they use their knowledge and understanding of animals to design unique and educational experiences, to give their audiences an experience they have never had before.

The animal family consists of 26 animals, including a chinchilla, bearded dragon, degu, and blue tongued skink. The animals live at home with the Gabriels, where they are provided with excellent veterinary care, as well as individualized nutrition and enrichment care, to ensure a happy, healthy life.

The Animal World Experience Ani-Motion show is part of the Summer Reading Program at the Worcester Public Library. The theme for the 2016 program is “Wellness, Fitness, and Sports” - with loads of free programs being offered through August 20 at the Main Library and all branches.
