Students sang along with Miller as he described how a tadpole becomes a frog and a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly. They giggled as he acted out the dynamics between a predator and its prey, using puppets to illustrate a porcupine’s ability to protect itself.

South Bosque students were mesmerized by the singing, dancing zoologist.
