Grahamstown Critter Walk
On Saturday the 17th of March I hosted my third critter walk. The event was well received with approximately 35 people attending on the day. The day started out with a short snake demonstration, in which I showcased some of the snakes I had captured the week before on callouts, and was followed by a two hour ‘critter walk’ on a nearby farm. Whilst the weather was not great to start with, it soon warmed, and we managed to find several interesting species of reptile over the course of the morning. Although most people came to see the venomous snakes, it was great to see so much interest with the less ‘exciting’ tortoises and frogs, which we found during the critter walk. Thanks goes to ZEML (Zoology and Entomology Molecular Lab) for helping me run the event.
