Reptile Display at Cub Scout meeting

I went and did a little reptile display and education for a group of Cub Scouts on thursday. I brought several varieties of corn snakes, a few baby rosy boas, and a gray banded kingsnake. I showed them some rattlesnake photos, some snake skins and also gave them an opportunity to watch the rosy boas and corn snakes have a meal. I think they all really enjoyed the presentation….including the adults. Another person brought their sulcatta tortoise to the display as well. It turned out really well. One of the parents also bought a corn snake!

Steve Irwin – Rest in Peace

The Crocodile Hunter was killed by a Sting-Ray this morning.  Irwin was a great entertainer and a great teacher.  He took the camera into the animals habitat and gave his viewers a perspective of the animals not often shown.  To appreciate something, you need to understand it.  Steve Irwin encouraged people to appreciate animals by helping them understand them  My sincerest condolences to his family.  May he rest in peace.
