Herps Alive traveling reptiles return to IU Southeast

22nd September 2011

NEW ALBANY, IN (Sept. 22, 2011) – Get ready for a slithery show and tell. Herpetologist Keith Gisser is bringing his traveling reptile and amphibian show back to Indiana University Southeast.

Gisser will visit the University from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 25, in the Hoosier Room for the 17th annual Herps Alive show.

Herps Alive is an interactive program designed to allow kids ages 3 to 12 to get up close and personal with snakes, turtles, frogs, salamanders, and other animals. They will also learn about how “herptiles” live in their natural habitat, care and survival in captivity, similarities and differences between species, and little known bits of humorous insight into the world of reptiles and amphibians

Gisser has more than 20 years of experience as a herpetologist and travels the country each year showcasing his animals. About two dozen creatures are featured in the Herps Alive show.

For more information, contact Kimberly Pelle at (812) 941-2650. The show is free and open to the public.
