Summer Reading Event: Phoenix Herpetological Society, Desert Reptiles and Safety

What kinds of reptiles are venomous and non-venomous in AZ? How do we stay safe around these reptiles? Learn what to do if you 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.

Sponsored by Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.

Aprenda qué hacer si alguna vez ve o escucha una serpiente de cascabel en la naturaleza, por qué los monstruos de Gila son animales tan asombrosos, por qué las tortugas del desierto son animales protegidos y cómo saber si una serpiente es venenosa o no.
