Researchers at UCLA attached an EEG cap to Phoebe and monitored her brainwaves and eye movements while she looked at some floating bubbles on a screen.

Star Eco Station

Went to a birthday party at Star Eco Station, an exotic wildlife rescue center with birds, reptiles, and some moderately big cats (e.g. a serval and a bobcat/lynx hybrid).

The tour guide explained how bird smugglers will stuff dozens of exotic birds into a mailing tube even though they know that most of the birds will die en route. I don't think the kids really grasped the lesson, but several of them were very interested in looking into the mailing tube.

I think this was supposed to be a dolphin painted on Phoebe's face, although to me it looks more like some kind of aquatic dragon?
