Snake Breeding and Color Morphs and some bubbles…

March 24th, 2010 | Comments Off on Snake Breeding and Color Morphs and some bubbles… | Posted in Scales And Tails

This March we held a workshop on snake breeding and color morphs.  Guest speaker, Mike Jenks, who is a local snake breeder and expert on creating color morphs in said reptiles, came and introduced us to the concept.  We got to see a variety of cool patterns in ball pythons and blood pythons, and even got to handle some of them!  Afterwards, local artist, Joy McManaman, and Scales & Tail’s own Jeremy Westerman painted faces.  The kids also got to go crazy with the bubbles!  We had all the kids take a turn at being inside a giant bubble and pretend to hatch out of an egg by popping the bubble.  It was a soapy mess but well worth it!  Check out the pics below:


Scorpions Glowing in the Light – Black Light that is…

March 10th, 2010 | Comments Off on Scorpions Glowing in the Light – Black Light that is… | Posted in Scales And Tails

Scales and Tails entertainer Jeremy Westerman presented a great workshop on Scorpions last month.  We learned about different types of Scorpions, their habitats, how to search for them in the wild, and that they glow under a black light.  We got an up close and personal….sometimes too personal (in the mouth!) look at some scorpions and then we went on a hunt all over the shop trying to find some painted scorpions!  It was really fun and we have the pictures to prove it.  Take a look!
