Get ready to experience a true reptile encounter while learning all about reptiles. Allie the 5 foot alligator will join us along with a 15 foot python that you just might get the chance to hold. Let's not leave out the amazing and unique reptiles such as the alligator snapping turtle, monkey tail skink, huge monitor lizard and more that will help us to kick off this year's summer reading program and make it a truly heroic experience!
