The Reptile Guy

As you probably already guessed, the reptile guy showed up at work the other day. Since I think reptiles are cool, and since the boss asked me to take photos with her camera, I showed up. I’ll say right now, I really don’t like the camera she has. But the reptiles are cool, so here we go.

I think this is some kind of gecko. I hate the date printed on photos.

A little snake. Yes, I touched all of these creatures with no screaming or squealing like some of the teachers were doing.

Not a reptile, but one of my little girl friends, enjoying the reptile show. Here she is telling me *something* – you know how hard it is to understand a two year old unless they’re your own.

A lizard. Those spiky things are just for show. They’re actually very soft.

The same lizard, with a 16 mo. old touching him, and a teacher’s death grip on the child’s arm. Man, these teachers need to relax a bit.

A cool snake, who liked his tummy tickled.

A little alligator who was a little anxious.

Last, but not least, the big boa that got wrapped around my neck.

    What a great experience for the kids to see all these neat creatures up close and personal! :c)

    Those little ones won’t forget that experience. I would have loved to be there!

    Cool! That lizard is a Bearded Dragon. I know because my son has been saving up all his extra money for one since he as 4. He has been told he can get one when he’s 10. He’s 8 now. We may give in sooner! šŸ™‚

    Fascintating creatures. I only get to see things like these behind glass. How wonderful for the children to be able to touch them. Maybe they won’t be so fearful as the teachers seem to be.

    Jayne – it is!

    Lynne – They won’t, and you would have loved it! You would have had the boa around your neck, too.

    Liza – very cool! I hope he gets one sooner!!

    Martha – I’m hoping these experiences will help them not to be afraid.
