Paleontology: Tales of a Herpetologist

Herpetology is the study of reptiles and amphibians, including snakes, turtles, frogs, toads, salamanders, lizards, crocodilians and more. Hop, slither or crawl to our final Teen Science Café of the school year to meet Dr. Bryan Stuart, the Museum’s own Research Curator of Herpetology, and dive into the life and times of a herpetologist! Travel with him to Southeast Asia to hear tales of his field work there and discover some of the thousands of research specimens that Dr. Stuart curates in the Museum’s own herpetology collection. Who knows, you may even get to meet some live “herps” up close!

Free food to the first 50 teens!
