Alligators, Snakes and Snapping Turtles at the Library!

Reptiles of many shapes, colors and eating habits will occupy Literacy Park this Wednesday, August 8 at 1:00 p.m., when the Reptileman joins us for the last summer reading show of 2012.

Richard Ritchey is the Reptileman. A huge favorite with kids in Lincoln County, he brings his reptilian creatures to the libraries for a very up-close encounter. Ritchey is a herpetologist with unique insights, observations and a great sense of humor. His shows are always highly entertaining and educational. Among the many snakes and lizards he’ll bring with him are a King Cobra, rattlesnake, monitor lizard and, perhaps, an alligator snapping tortoise. 

The above photo was taken in 2010 when Sam Hurst held a boa constrictor during Reptileman's Literacy Park show.
