The Crete Public Library’s Youth Services Department’s large meeting room was filled recently with eager children for a presentation by wildlife biologist Deb Krohn aka the Frog Lady.
Summer reading club members from Dig Into Reading listened to Krohn speak on reptiles and amphibians, which she said is her favorite thing to talk about.
The Frog Lady brought many of her teaching pets with her so the audience saw the amphibians and reptiles while learning about them.
Many said the highlight of the program was to be close to the animals and have the opportunity to touch the amphibians, which included bearded dragons and turtles.
Frogs, snakes and a monitor lizard were also among the creatures available for the audience to view, touch and hold.
Several patrons said they were thrilled to hold the corn snake or the python.
Sights included a turtle and tortoise eating greens inside their cage.
