Herp Club Invades the Sciencenter

This weekend, the Cornell Herpetological Society held another education program, this time at the Ithaca Sciencenter. We tabled some herps for several hours while families moved through. Enough talk, just pictures:

See the Gargoyle Gecko?

Wanna buy a snake?

Eric's young Ackie (Varanus acanthurus)

Corn Snake learns about Gecko feet
Flying Geckos (Ptychozoon kuhli) like me

I demonstrate the principles of Flying Gecko gliding

What an amusing look

Red-footed Tortoise (Geochelone carbonaria)

Ol' Googly Eyes the Trans-Pecos Rat Snake (Bogertophis subocularis)

Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina): Not for touching


Beatrice and Sobe
Suzie and Dagoji

Shawn's Gargoyle Gecko (Rhacodactylus auriculatus)

Zoom in on this Spotted Python (Antaresia maculosa) - it has evil eyes.

Chris wonders where her Trans-Pecos Ratsnake went.

Finally, a few of the Sciencenter's own critters:

Toadfish (Opsanus)

Marbled Gecko (Gekko sp., probably monarchus)

Golden Gecko (Gekko ulikovskii)
