Turtleman at Little Ponderosa

Ernie Brown Jr., aka “Turtleman,” made a guest appearance at Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue Saturday where the reality TV star entertained fans of all ages — but especially children. Turtleman signed t-shirts, photos, and even the arms of his fans. His appearance helped raise funds for the non-profit rescue and founder/owner James Cox said it was a huge success. More than 700 tickets to the zoo were sold in the week before Saturday and, “That’s only this week,” Cox said. Cox said that Turtleman talked with everyone who came through Saturday.
