MANSFIELD, OH - Staff members from the Columbus Zoo and an assortment of animals came to Mansfield to show residents of a local nursing home a fact-filled presentation on their furry friends.

The presentation included animals such as a Tamandua named Oscar, a penguin named Tuna, and other small animals like Armadillos and Geoffroy's Cats.

"They seemed to enjoy it quite a bit," said Brenda Wachtel, Administrator at Winchester Terrace. "We had some oohs and aahs when some of the animals came out. I think the penguin was definitely the big highlight."
