Herpetofauna Talk at the Zoology Department

On friday the 17th of November, myself and Luke Kemp hosted a ‘Herpetofauna of Grahamstown talk in the Rhodes Zoology and Entomology tea room for members of the department. The talk discussed all the reptiles and frogs that can be found in Grahamstown and gave tips on how to distinguish morphologically-similar species.

The talk also discussed basic snakebite treatment and was capped off with a short demonstration with live specimens. All in all, it was a thoroughly enjoyable event with both lecturers and students excitedly putting themselves forward to handle the indigineous snakes that we brought on the day.

Thanks to Shelley Edwards for the awesome photos listed below.
