The course starts at 09:00 sharp with an introduction to “What’s a reptile?”, an overview of the common venomous snakes of the Western Cape, and what to do if a snake is encountered. The rest of the show is very interactive, with lots to hold, touch and see, including a Corn Snake, a Mole Snake, a Ball Python, a Giant Rock Scorpion, a Baboon Spider, a Terrapin, a Tortoise, a chameleon, a Sungazer, a Rock Monitor, and a very tame 4.6m Burmese Python. The show is very educational, entertaining, and interactive and the parents will enjoy it just as much as the kids. The course will end at 12:30.
