PARKERSBURG — Learners at Martin Elementary were dealt with to a check out from some scaly creatures Friday when Keith Gisser, a herpetologist and reptile handler from Herps Alive Reptile Rescue, brought some close friends to meet up with them.

Gisser released students to such reptiles as turtles, bearded dragons, tegus (a species of South American lizard), a blue-tongued skink, “who doesn’t stink,” and of system, snakes. There was also a frog, a member of the amphibian family members.

College students shrieked with delight and amazement as Gisser brought out each and every reptile, with the most important exhibit of enjoyment coming when Benny, the 15-foot-extensive Burmese python, was released.

Gisser would introduce each and every reptile, explain in which they could be uncovered in character, communicate about what they try to eat, and then wander all-around to make it possible for the pupils to interact with each individual very first hand.

A courageous team of pupils volunteered to come up and keep Benny to show the amazing duration these reptiles can expand to grow to be.
