Live feeding of a snake is just one of the highlights at the summer presentation that's all about reptiles

Back by popular demand, the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives is thrilled to host Stuart Brown again this summer with not only one, but two presentations on reptiles.

“If snakes, bearded dragons and red-eyed tree frogs fascinate you, don’t miss this opportunity to get up close and personal with these scaly, cold-blooded vertebrates,” said Denise Marsh, marketing and communications coordinator at the museum. “Stuart will have a number of his reptiles on hand during his talk.

“In the past, Stuart has been known to do a live feeding for one of his snakes. This is done at the end, and only after he’s warned the audience, giving those who do not want to be present, time to leave. Those who remain are always captivated.”

This approximately 90-minute presentation is appropriate for adults and children seven and up. A question-and-answer period will be held following the talk and you may even be lucky enough to hold Stuart’s Dumeril’s Boa snake!

The reptiles presentation takes place at the museum July 23 and Aug. 20 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. As space is limited and Brown’s shows are always popular, you are encouraged to purchase your tickets early, to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are $5 per person, available at the museum. For more information please call 250-542-3142 or visit www.vernonmuseum.ca or www.facebook.com/vernonmuseum.
