Beezus and Ramona
(1998 - 2001)
Beezus was a black gerbil and Ramona was a standard brown gerbil. The tradition of children mailing vacation postcards to the gerbils began with them. A child drew a portrait of them which we hung on their tank and then a staff member sent a postcard. Soon more staff members and children were sending them mail and we would post the newest one on their tank and put the older ones into a three ring binder for people to enjoy.
