What happens if you covered your arm with a bag of Crisco oil and stuck it into a bucket filled with ice? You would feel nothing, like a sea lion in the cooler waters of the North Pacific. Do you think you can get yourself out of an alligator’s mouth? Well, too bad because at 3,500 pounds, the force of its bite is equivalent to that of a car landing on top of you. Those are some of the things that Glendale resident Anne Beckner learned while preparing for the L.A. Zoo’s World Music Night on Tuesday evening, which focused on animals from all over the world.

GLENDALE — Michael Brown's passion for animals spans the states. Ask him why, and he'll say that everybody's got a story. "When I was a small child, we got a dog, and I think the dog was with us for all of two hours and then it ran away," the 49-year-old Glendale resident said. "That impacted me. I have always had an emotional reaction to seeing stray dogs or cats in the street, going so far as to watching films of animals that are lost or don't have a home. It's always difficult for me."

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — The jungle was brought to the city's public library Friday afternoon for a select group of students who found themselves face-to-face with a live alligator and 5-foot snake. Dozens of fidgety preschoolers gathered with their teachers in the building's auditorium and crowded around Pacific Animal Productions' Cindi Cavallini, who would be their guide to unlocking the secrets of the jungle over the next 40 minutes. The program — provided through a grant from the Pasadena Collaborative Literary Project — was aimed at providing the type of entertainment that could ignite an interest in reading for young students, said Pasadena librarian Pamela Groves-Gaggioli, who helped put on the presentation.

Not wanting to miss the opportunity, Droguett got out of the vehicle to take a picture.
