Toad. Scorpion. Snake. Owl.

This lineup of nocturnal stars won over the 30 library visitors who came to see them July 11.

The Evergreen Library hosted a “Creatures of the Night” presentation by the Sedalia-based Nature’s Educators, as part of its children’s program. The educators presented the animals, and informed younger and older audience members how each had adapted to live and hunt during the nighttime.
