Reptile Adventures is an overview of reptiles and amphibians; we explain what makes a reptile a reptile, and how different reptiles live in their native ecosystems. We have a variety of animals from all over the globe and from many habitats. Topics include what the animals eat, how they find their food, how they avoid predators, and what related animals can be found in New York (We do have a few native NY animals). Every Reptile Adventure presentation involves allowing audience members to touch and feel the animals. We are also more than happy to allow students to line up for photos. At least one animal, usually a turtle or lizard, will be fed either insect prey or fruit. For grades K-5. *Registration Required.
