The Trustees of Reservations hosts an afternoon of fun herpetology at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate with Rick Roth of the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team! We’ll start with a hunt for local snake species around the Crane Estate, looking under logs and around the stone walls that lace the property. Capture will be strictly catch and release! We’ll then make our way to the Barn where Rick Roth, founder and executive director of the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team and local snake expert, will present "Snakes of New England and the World." Rick cares for over 100 snakes of all different species -- even if we don’t find any slithering friends on our hunt, there will be plenty of snakes to see and learn about during the show.
Enter the world of geckos — bulging eyes, night vision, sticky toepads, squawking voices, and disposable body parts. Geckos can be found all over the planet in climates ranging form rainforests to mountainsides to desert. Their knack for adaptation has created a specialized species that have uniques tools to ensure their srvival. Come check out more than 60 exotic geckos are coming to the Museum of Science!
