Tarantulas, scorpions and millipedes are some of the creepy creatures that Erin brings to the shows.
She teaches you that there is nothing to fear from these animals by telling how she overcame her own fears as a child.
Today, Erin thinks these creatures are some of the most fascinating in the whole show!
Toads, tomato frogs, spade-foots, bufo marino, bull frogs, pixie frogs, whites tree frogs, salamanders, newts and fire bellies are just some of the amphibians that come to the show. These cuties display characteristics of dramatically different habitats.
Amphibians give us important clues about the quality of our environment. These sensitive creatures are often the first to react to pollutants in our ecosystem.
Resist the urge to get cute amphibians as pets. If you do anyways, make sure that it is "captive bred" since amphibians are disappearing all over the world and we need to keep the wild ones out there! Many types also excrete potentially harmful toxins that the store sales people are often unaware of. And remember that the LESS you handle your amphibian, the better they will do!
Iguanas have always been one of the most popular reptiles to own because they are so tameable and docile. However, in a matter of two to three years, healthy Iguanas can reach 4-6 feet & outgrow your home! Erin has an Iguana rescue and adoption program so contact her if you are interested in adopting or donating a large Iguana.
