THE INTERACTIVE LIVE REPTILE AND AMPHIBIAN EXPERINCE WITH KEITH GISSER
If your campus has never had a frog invasion, an alligator walk through your cafeteria line or a monstrous constrictors visit your Union, you have never invited HERPS ALIVE! to your campus.
HERPS ALIVE!! offers formal lecture programs for all ages, roving shows and multi-cage displays. It's an interactive program where participants are encouraged to handle the animals while learning how these amazing "herptiles" live in their nature habitat, their care in captivity and little known bits of interesting information.The formal lecture features nearly 2 dozen animals, discussed one at a a time, while the display features nearly 3 dozen, including the unique Tortoise Experience
Roving programs emphasize the larger animals including eight-foot plus constricting snakes, a 25 lb tortoise an american Alligator and more. Keith Gisser, the presenter of the program, has over 30 years experience dealing with all aspects of herpetology and herpetoculture. His work has been lauded by experts such as Jack Hanna, Dir. of Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo
From Preston at Pembroke- Thank you again for being a part of UNCP's Family Day! The most frequently asked question that people tend to ask about FD is usually "will the reptile guy be back?". Your program is very well liked and we love having you on campus. Thanks again!
