Reptile Man Returns
Turtles and lizards and snakes, oh my! The Reptile Man returns to Literacy Park this Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. His perennially popular show focuses on the science of herpetology, the study of amphibians and reptiles, and is perfect for this year’s summer reading science theme, Fizz! Boom! Read!
Richard Ritchey has been the Reptile Man for over 20 years. He brings unique insights, observations and a great sense of humor to his science based shows which are always highly entertaining and educational. Some of the snakes and lizards he’ll bring with him are a king cobra, rattlesnake, monitor lizard and, perhaps, an alligator snapping tortoise along with many more. My personal favorite is the deadly coral snake which he handles with skill and verve. His amazing creatures can be seen on his website.
