Howdy!

When I do school presenations I take around 10 or so different animals! I take some for kids to look at only, some for handling. I usually have at least 1 larger burm, 1 tortoise (usually my large sulcatta), 1 iguana, a few balls. Depending on what is sitting here in the rescue, we take a beardie, corn, boa, etc.

When I talk about the snakes, I offer some basic information depending on what group it is. Natural habitat range, ease of keeping as pets, what is needed as pets. Stuff like that. I also usually talk about the importance of selecting carefully so you dont become a statistic and have your unwanted pet end up in my rescue.
