Found out about black bear research from the experts at Ocala Forest. One park ranger had a baby kingsnake, often confused with coral snake. I had not seen a wild one before! Also got to see some zoo animals up close as part of the festival and someone who was carrying around a pet marmoset. I loved petting the gentle possum, it was the best part of the day! Poor possums are a misunderstood marsupial (not a rat!).
