1st herp show= Success!!

Well, as expected the Kids and I had a great time.
I spoke and answered questions for 50 kids for an hour
and a half...a good time was had by all, with no incidents,
and I will be back for another show .

I showed 5 snakes, 3 lizards and 1 T




Cheers
Brian

Awesome job, Brian! Isn't it awesome showing kids reptiles? When Erin and I were working with Scales Zoo at the TARAS show, it was the fascination of the kids that made it totally worthwhile. I'm looking forward to doing some school shows myself.

Thanks for the kind words, I highly recommend everyone that has some knowedge do a show. I had a tone of fun and gave some good advice i believe. I also do them for free to gain experience.
I opened with a Big eyed Purple diamond back stuffed toy. lol

Thanks for the support
Brian

Great to hear, I always love teaching people about snakes that i work with (can't bring them in but my cube is plastered with pics). It's also fun to teach kids and see people get over their fear of snakes.

Congrats Brian! I used to show my tarantulas back when i was in high school and college. I also did it for free as I got to miss classes to be able to speak in front of others. It was great experience for me and real fun. I would love to do it again but I am too shy now to talk in front of people. I guess it would be so bad in front of little kids or even if I had someone with me. Anyways, enough mumbling, just wanted to congratulate you.
Take care,
Oh and just curious, what kind of tarantula did you bring?
