Speedy came to live at Wildlife Images when his previous owners could no longer take care of him. He is an incredibly entertaining, social animal who has turned out to be a favorite for encounters as an education ambassador. Whether he is hunting crickets, taking his human for a walk on the leash, or sleeping on someone’s shoulder, there is no end to his adorable antics.

We Need Your Help

With over 80 animal ambassadors, and over 1,000 sick injured and orphaned animals brought to our center each year - every dollar counts. We rely solely on people like yourself to support the work we do.

We receive no State or Federal funding and depend entirely on private funds to carry out our Mission.
