Czechland Pets share Exotic Animals with Third Graders
Bo and Jason, from Czechland Pet Store in Fairbury, gave a presentation on exotic animals to the third graders at Jefferson Intermediate. The students learned the difference between poisonous and venomous animals. Bo explained the differences between snakes that lay eggs and snakes that give live birth. The tree frogs you should never handle them without gloves because of how sensitive the skin is, and it will harm them even tree frogs found locally. A gecko will drop its tail when predators are around and then when it regrows the tail, it never grows back the same pattern and shape. A tortoise can live up to 250 years old. Bo and Jason share that we should make sure we take care of our pets and don’t keep them outside or they could get sunburned. That can cause skin issues in some animals such as crocodiles, frogs, snakes, and even our pets. We learned a lot from Bo and Jason and thank them for sharing their knowledge with the students at Jefferson.
