Today the Catholic homeschoolers of our area were visited by Mr Dave of Animal Trax. He brought quite the collection of reptiles and other critters.
This first one is a Bearded Dragon named Charlie
Most of the kids got a chance to touch him. Here's a pic of Theresa; John wasn't interested.
Christopher was the only student that got to be touched by the tarantula. They had to crouch down low to the floor because tarantulas can 'break' if they fall from high up. You can see Charlie sitting patiently on the table in the background.
Of course I can't remember the names of these snakes. I'll have to research or hope that someone in our group reads my blog and reminds me.
During petting time, Ida got to be in charge of this snake. I was the adult supervisor for Charlie (I had a competent middle schooler that was his 'handler') so I was unable to get pics of Theresa with the snake.
