Free Reptile Show -- Cool!

Last night, I took my kids to a really cool library program called Reptile World  (Don't worry! You can see the show, too. There are 4 more showings and I've posted the info below.)

I must say, the show was really cool. The head presenter had a peaceful, calming voice that reminded me of Mr. Rogers, and knew tons of facts about reptiles. One of the cooler parts of the presentation is when they show you how large a crocodile can get. They spread a tape measure between the two presenters until it reaches 20 feet. That would be one massive crocodile.  During the show they did last night, we saw an alligator, crocodile, green anaconda (way big!), milk snake, and turtle.

 The show is a little over an hour, so younger kids may get fidgety toward the end, but if you're interested in learning about reptiles, definitely take your kids out to see this show, which is offered for FREE by the Prince George's County Memorial Library System.  More information on the presenters of the show is online at

Here are a few photos from the show.  Beneath that is information on the other Reptile World shows, including which branch of the library it will be at.
