October Workshop is all about “Colubrids & Cages”

September 25th, 2009 | Comments Off on October Workshop is all about “Colubrids & Cages” | Posted in Scales And Tails

Have you ever been outside in your backyard or out it the woods and caught a garter snake or a gopher snake (also known as a Blow snake)?? You probably didn’t know that it was a Colubrid did you?! Colubrid is a broad classification of snakes which include but are not limited to: Milk Snakes, King Snakes, & Gopher Snakes. At this workshop we will learn all about Colubrid’s including how to take care of them properly and how to set up a proper cage. We’ll get to hold a bunch of snakes and maybe even get to help feed some of our other critters!

This workhop is open to the public and we invite you to bring friends and other family members!

Operation Night – Performing Surgery…

September 24th, 2009 | Comments Off on Operation Night – Performing Surgery… | Posted in Scales And Tails

Last month’s Reptile Workshop was so cool! We learned all about Caring for our Sick Reptilian pets like how to tell when they are sick, what to do for some problems and when to make the desicion to the vet. We learned how to get rid of mites (Try “Prevent-a-mite” from the pet store), got to see and help a snake poop.. (ewww… but still cool!), we checked out snake teeth and saw the results of a poorly put together cage (saw the scars on a rescued animal from when it got burnt on a heat lamp). After all the learning we took a break and tried out our hands on a little surgery. We played “Operation” on a GIANT LIZARD!! The prizes were cool and the buzzer scared us when we missed. The last part of the night we watched Shane and Rindy set up an incubator and put fresh tortoise eggs in it from Daisy and Fuzzy Wuzzy the red footed tortoises. Whoo! What a night! I can’t wait till next month! I think we are learning about Colubrids! Check out the pics below!
