African serval cat to name a few. We introduce each animal one at a

and choose a gift at the end of the presentation. Safari parties
last approximately 1 hour and can be tailored to a specific theme.

will help you understand their natural
world. We will tell you interesting facts about
their diets, enemies, and special adaptations that help them survive
- Teachers, are you having trouble getting kids
excited about geography. Have you ever heard of New Caledonia? By
the time we finish with your students, they will know where it is
and they will know all about a species of gecko that was thought to
be extinct. We have skinks from the Solomon Islands, tortoises from
Russia, dragons and a marsupial from Australia as well as many
animals from Africa and South America.
Come close to some of the most fascinating and feared creatures
in the animal kingdom. Reptiles and amphibians come to you straight

s-s-snuggle a s-s-snake, giggle at a gecko and have a late lunch
with a lizard. Great slimy, scaly fun.

Whose skull is this? What bone is that? See and touch bones from
many different species. Some of the bones we will
bring are a camel skull, warthog skull, various reptile bones,
ostrich, birds, bison and more. We will compare an alligator skull
to a crocodile skull, a real giraffe neck bone to a plastic human
neck bone model. Play our "Deer in
a Bucket" game and reconstruct a deer
feel real 65 million year old dinosaur
bones and meet some of the living links to the "Age
of the Dinosaurs" such as an alligator, tortoise, and scorpion.

TWO CHICKS WITH SNAKE STICKS
Living with with rattlesnakes in Sonoma
Warm weather brings
people out of their homes and snakes out of their dens, leading to close encounters of the s-s-slithering kind.
Snakes don’t have anyone to call when you
end up on their doorstep but you will have someone to call when
they end up on yours. California has many
types of snakes, most of which are harmless with the exception the
northern pacific rattlesnake, Northern
California’s only venomous snake.
We offer a class in local snake identification and what to do if you
encounter a rattlesnake. You will learn how to
tell the difference between a gopher snake and a rattlesnake. We
will also teach you how to safely contain a rattlesnake for the
safety of all involved including the rattlesnake. We will give you
contact information for either TWO CHICKS or Reptile Rescue to come
and pick them up. We will have available safe capture equipment for
purchase if you so desire.
This class is appropriate for individuals, home owner
associations, wineries, park employees, field workers, scout
