See what wild things can happen when you’re open to exploring new paths and embracing those invigorating “what if” moments.

What’s up with the lizard and the dog? We’re going to find out - and see special guest Watson in action - as the Zoo’s Dr. Cheryl Morris traces the trajectory of a curious girl who loved to learn new things, listen to smart people and follow those intense gut feelings of “what if.” Cheryl believes curiosity is a beautiful gift of choice we have daily, and she lives by the words of Walt Disney: “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
