Scales, Scutes & Skins

Do you know the difference between a reptile and an amphibian? Discover the science of herpetology in this interactive program. A live animal show and adaptation game will compare reptile and amphibian adaptations and teach students the important roles these animals play in the environment. Participants may use thermal tools to gain insight into how these cold-blooded critters live a little differently than us. Students will learn how to care for and protect Wisconsin’s diverse herps. Upham staff is required for this program.

Accessibility notes: During this indoor class, students will be able to touch the animals and animals can be maneuvered to wherever the student is.
