Lizards, and Snakes, and Turtles, Oh My!

This past Friday, we had a special visit from Bwana Iguana, thanks to the generosity of Alan Shawn Feinstein.  It was an exciting and educational experience for our class.  We had a lot of fun seeing, holding, and petting many different reptiles.  The class favorite was the blue tongue skink who could dance when we sang, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”  Of course, a few students were selected to show the lizard how to dance properly.  We also learned a lot.  I myself never knew the king snake was called that because he eats other snakes, such as rattlesnakes.  Another new fact we learned was that the box turtle is one of the only turtles to completely close itself into its shell, like a box.  Hence the name, box turtle! Thank you, Alan Shawn Feinstein, for a wonderful hands-on learning experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.
