In Reply to: Snakes to school for the day posted by Rebecca on December 18, 1998 at 06:24:47:

: Hi, all!

: I'm looking for suggestions on how to bring a snake or two to school for an all day visit. I know many teachers keep herps at school and others bring them to schools for educational demonstrations.

: However, I have a classroom of young students in an alternative school (for severe behavior disorders) who can't handle having a snake as a resident class pet at this point. (We're getting there.... we're currently at the turtle stage!!) But I'd like to bring a couple corns, and maybe a ball, just for a day.

: Any suggestions as to how to transport them (hour long commute!) and how to house them during the day? What would be an appropriate enclosure and how would I best keep it warm?

: My love of snakes is many years old but I'm a relative novice at keeping them.

: Thanks in advance,
: Rebecca

Rebecca, I would put them in clear, hard plastic containers. I have bought plastic cubes at art stores to show spiders and insects to small children.
Many reptile breeders sell snakes in plastic liver tubs available at Smart & Final Co. or 99 cent store. I have used both of these methods with High School
L.D. and S.E.D. kids. The key is slow movements and not trying to show too many things at once. Check out the pictures on my web page, here in Lucky's section.
They were taken last summer in a bilingual 4th grade class. Good Luck......... CraigB
