Williamsport, Lycoming County – Students came face to face with some scary looking reptiles.
Monday was a day of learning for children from around Williamsport. Children and their parents filled a room at the James V. Brown Library to learn about snakes, lizards, crocodiles, and turtles. The snakes stole the show.
“I guess they’re gigantic. I’ve never seen a snake that big before,” said Hannah Smith.
Hannah’s mother, Amy Smith, is glad she brought her daughter to the show.
“We don’t always get to see reptiles like this. We don’t always have the knowledge. For this library to offer a speaker with so much knowledge to come in and just entertain the kids. Everybody was so excited and so into it,” said Amy.
Children were able to touch a tamer snakes that lives within the northeast.
“Cool, fun, and weird,” said Julian Turner after putting a snake around his neck.
Jesse Rothacker is the presidents for ‘Forgotten Friend’ in the Lancaster area. He travels around the state to show children and parents the type of creatures that live in the world and ones that could be in your back yard.
“They get a taste to see some of these animals and then we encourage them to open a book and explore the world on their own,” said Rothacker.
