Pocket Pets Project
Pocket Pets helps you learn about small hand pets and how to care for them. This is an excellent beginning project, especially if you are a younger member who wants to learn what it’s like to care for an animal. You will develop important life skills and practical skills through hands-on activities that will teach you about your pet’s needs. Pets included in these materials are ferrets, snakes and turtles, hamsters, gerbils, mice, fish, frogs and toads, lizards, birds, guinea pigs, and others.
