Thursday during creek camp we got the chance to meet April Claus. She gave us a lesson in Herpetology. Herpetology is the study of amphibians and reptiles. April taught us about all the native frog, salamander, turtles and snake species. Also, she taught us how to ID the different species. Identifying species was very important later in the day when we went searching for different species in bousson and french creek. April also brought along her pets. Her pets included frogs, snakes and turtles. My personal favorite was the garter snake. April's pets and knowledge provided a great intro to our salamander, frog, snake and turtle hunts later in the day.
