Come hear a presentation by Dave and then take part in an amazing hands-on session where you get to handle turtles, snakes, lizards, amphibians, an alligator and some small mammals.

Animal Experiences offers a thoroughly enjoyable, educational and  hands-on experience for kids from 3 to 99.  During the Animal Experiences presentation, Dave will  educate the audience on how to appreciate and respect reptiles and small animals without being afraid of them.  Participants will learn which animals make good pets and which are inappropriate and the reasons why, while having the thrill of not just looking at, but handling the animals on their own. Nothing works as well as hands-on experience when teaching children. Because each show includes a wide range of animals, there is something to appeal to everyone. 

Space is limited. Registration required. Call Anne at 455-8098 or email
