Reptile Discovery at Blanco Middle School
Wednesday, February 11, 2009 • Posted February 10, 2009

Students and staff of Blanco Middle School enjoyed a very interesting presentation by Reptile expert, Bruce Shwedick. Students had the opportunity to learn about and interact with a Yellow-footed Tortoise, a four foot long Rhino Iguana, and a six foot long Anaconda.

The star of the show was “Banana Boy” a 16 foot long Albino Python, whose species is native to Thailand. All students had the opportunity to touch the python if they wished, however, not all students or staff took this opportunity!

Students learned about the history, geography, conservation, and habitat of the various species. This was a great learning opportunity for the students of Blanco Middle School.

The event was sponsored by the Middle School Science Department and funded by our carnation sales project.
