Since we introduced the Pet of the Issue feature in May, Beachcomber has been swamped with requests to feature dogs, cats, drunken possums, etc. Which is why it makes absolutely no sense for us to devote our month-long issue’s pet page to all the critters we spotlighted throughout 2017.
Apologies to the Emerald Coast Science Center, whose entertaining and educational menagerie of exotic animals appeared in Pet of the Issue twice and are not reprinted here due to space limitations.
