Introduction to Herpatology
Thursday afternoon, the students from Creek Camp were introduced to various species of reptiles and amphibians that inhabit northwestern Pennyslvania. Students were able to hold snake species such as the milksnake, cornsnake, and gaurder, as well as the American toad, boxturtle, snapping turtle, and spring peeper. They were also taught how to distinguish posionous snake species from non-posionous species.
