About the Event
Snakes, lizards, tortoises- Oh my! It'Sssssss time to slitter, scuttle and stroll over to the Tatum Ranch Community Center for a special interactive, hands-on presentation by the Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary as they showcase reptiles from around the world. Children and their caregivers will meet 6 different reptiles from each continent. They will discuss differences in habitats, why certain animals live where they do, and fun facts about every animal.
There may be venomous animals involved with this demonstration, but they remain in locked display boxes at all times. The Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary believes that these animals help teach valuable information and therefore are incorporated with the utmost safety. Animals used for interactions are non-venomous and proven education animals.
Children must be accompanied by their caregivers for this presentation. The presentation has been tailored for children 0 to 12 years of age. That said, older children are welcome to attend. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. After the presentation, children will get to apply what they've learned in a coloring activity.
