On June 10 Southeastern Reptile Rescue will bring their Junior Reptile Wagon at the Riverdale Branch Library showcasing snakes native to Georgia . This display will offer a wide variety of native reptiles to view as well as exotic species of venomous and non-venomous snakes. All animals on display are kept in locked cages that provide up close, safe viewing for guests. Some reptiles are made available to attendees for optional hands-on experiences.
Jason Clark, and his family, who ARE Southeastern Reptile Rescue/Snakesareus, have recently become popular nationally via their new show on Animal Planet, Snakeskin . However, Jason has been well-known in Clayton County for a long time, for his programs at libraries and other places featuring his family’s snakes, for snake and reptile rescue, and for being a Clayton County police officer. Now he’s decided to focus on reptiles and has resigned as a police officer. For more information on Jason Clark read “Former Clayton cop is new ‘Animal Planet’ star” and go to the Snakesareus web site.
SnakesKin is creating quite a stir in Discovery.com’s blog, “The Skinny on ‘SnakesKin’.”
