AZ Herpetological Society Presents: Arizona Wildlife

Learn about some of our native Arizona wildlife in this hands-on demonstration with actual desert wildlife (animals used for interactions are non-venomous and are proven education animals). Starts at 11 A.M. at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum’s Learning Center. Free with Museum admission. Free for kids 17 and under and free for members.

This program gives guests the opportunity to learn about rattlesnakes, Gila monsters, gopher snakes, and desert tortoises in the safety and comfort of the Museum’s Cultural Crossroads Learning Center! In this demonstration, guests will learn what to do if they ever see or hear a rattlesnake in the wild, why Gila monsters are such amazing animals, why desert tortoises are protected animals, and how to tell if a snake is venomous or non-venomous. We’ll explore various methods of staying safe in our desert environment as well. The Society points out: “Please note that this demonstration does include live venomous animals, but that they are kept in locked display cases at all times. We believe these animals can help teach valuable information and therefore we incorporate them into our education programs with the utmost safety.”
