BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) — A central Illinois zoo has two new exhibits featuring six species, including a 17-foot-long snake.
Officials with Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington say most of the featured species are new to the zoo. One exhibit includes a large female snake called a Reticulated Python who is 4 years old.
Another display has a mix of species from the rainforests of Asia, like the colorful Fairy Bluebird or the Crested Wood Partridge, which is a ground bird.
The displays were paid for by the Miller Park Zoological Society's largest fundraiser.
