South Americanisius:  An Amazon Expedition

This is me. This is what I think. This is me 'n mike. 
Building this zoo has been an experience I will never forget.  It has brought me closer to the 15 people in my class than sitting in a chair in a classroom ever would have.  It has truly made me appreciate and love the animals of the South American Rainforest.  It is an experience I will never forget!
