From lizards to snakes, and frogs to salamanders, discover these animals’ natural history from prehistoric times to the present day!
Through hands-on teaching using live specimens, students will explore how reptiles and amphibians have evolved through history, compare and contrast their characteristics, and examine the unique adaptations which help them survive in specialized environments.
Learn how to distinguish turtles and tortoises, why reptiles lay eggs, and how lizards smell (not with noses!)
