Herpetology-the study of reptiles and amphibians
We had the chance to go to a Reptile Show. It was hosted by our local library so this was another one of my freebee fun events this Summer. I am, as you might know, a homeschooling mom so I thought EDUCATIONAL! My kids thought FUN! Pie Pie and Pants were very excited to go because the flyer said that everyone would get to touch a snake at the end.
It was a very fascinating and informative show. We learned about and got to see many different types of reptiles. These are the different types of reptiles:
You could tell the speaker loves what he does. His name is Jesse Rothacker and he's from Forgotten Friend Sanctuary. If you would like to know more check out his website: http://www.forgottenfriend.org/.
I thought all of the reptiles were amazing. Pie Pie's favorite was the Iguana, who's name was Boo. The Iguana got to have a snack right in front of us.
We eagerly awaited the end of the show so we could touch a snake. We all had a chance to touch Ruby who is a red corn snake.
No, they are not slimy. They are actually very smooth. This was a great show! A little long for Pants, but perfect for Pie Pie!
I thought it was kind of funny that he liked to wear the snakes on his head! I'm not sure if he was going for the Medusa look or if his head was cold. Snakes they CAN be a fun time!
