Knowing we had a group of interesting creatures coming to visit, we spent time with our members beforehand explaining how to handle any fear they might have. They certainly were welcome to stay in the back of the room, or at least not get near anything that made them uncomfortable.
Well, much to our surprise most of our members were VERY interested in touching and getting close to some very cool reptiles and “creepy crawlies”. Their curiosity was amazing….and quite impressive. We all learned a lot from our visiting teachers from Reigning Reptiles, a pet store in Buford.
