We want to thank everyone who came out to our first Scales & Tails workshop last week!!  We had SO MUCH FUN and hope all who attended did as well!  We are already working on next month’s workshop and will post another blog as soon as we have all the details worked out.  Till then, here are a few pictures from the workshop and a little bit about what we did:

The first thing we did was learn how to build proper homes for our Colubrid pets. 

Then we learned about feeding different kinds of plant eaters.

Then we made a crazy salad for the reptiles.

Then we got to feed them!!

Here we are feeding Twinkle Toes…

Then we got to feed Jub Jub!

It was an awesome night!  We can’t wait till next month!!!

Colubrids are good pets!

Date: Wednesday, Oct. 22nd

Time: 6:30pm

Place: Scales & Tails, 152 W. Burton Ave. (2360 S.), Ste. F, SLC, UT

Cost: $5 for Adults, $3 for kids 12 and under (FREE for Reptile Rookies!)

The Details:

It’s going to be EXCITING!! COOL! FUN!!

Scales & Tails will be holding the first workshop in a series of workshops we will be having through out the year.  This first workshop will be focused on “Colubrids” and how to take care of them.  Colubrids are pretty much all snakes not considered Python, Boa, or Viper.  So this would include: Milk snakes, King snakes, Garter snakes, Gopher Snakes, Corn Snakes, etc.  Basically many of the snakes that are considered “Good Pets”.  This workshop will last about 30 minutes and then allow for time afterwards to quiz Shane Richins and the rest of the crew about specifics on a pet you might have questions on.  We might also allow the kids to help feed some of our plant eating animals that night! This should be a lot of fun and should help kids learn how to good pet owners.

We will also be continuing to sell memberships for our “Reptile Rookies” program that night (or feel free to request more info via e-mail: shane@scalesandtailsutah.com or go to our “contact us” page on our website).
