Over the quarantine time period I’ve been able to do things I was too busy to do before, such as making new recipes that previously took too much time to complete, learning fun new hairstyles, and picking up an old ukulele I hadn’t touched in years.

Bear Essential News asked Robin Kropp, education specialist at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum for more than two decades, to talk about some of her favorite creatures! Some are small, some slither and some are larger, but they all are amazing. And best yet, you don’t need to travel far to see several of ’em!
