If your child is fascinated by snakes, be sure to bring him or her to Earthplace in Westport on Saturday, April 16, for an up close and personal look at some.
From 2:30 to 3:15 p.m., Earthplace Animal Care Technician Andy Todd, also known as "The Snake Guy," will teach you and your family everything you've ever wanted to know about snakes, including size, daily diet and their behavior. He'll also discuss which snakes make good pets.
"Snakes are one of the most misunderstood and unjustly feared and hated animals on the planet," Todd said in a news release. "I want kids to come away feeling like they just got to participate in something exciting and out of the ordinary something that they will remember when they are adults."
During the program, children over the age of 3 will have the opportunity to see and touch different types of snakes.
This program is included with the price of general admission and is free for Earthplace members . For more information, contact Linda Roberts at (203) 227-7253, ext. 115.
