Winter Sleeps: Amphibians & Reptiles
Amphibians and reptiles have particularly unique and awesome ways to survive winter. Some create more sugar and sugar-alcohols that act like "antifreeze" in their body fluids, while turtles may breathe through their cloaca (i.e., their butt)!
Penguin Court is delighted to host Brandon Ruhe, the statewide coordinator of the Pennsylvania Amphibian and Reptile Survey (PARS) and Director of the Mid-Atlantic Center for Herpetology and Conservation, for a virtual program about these critters. Mr. Ruhe will also share information about how you, as a citizen scientist, may contribute to PARS.
This is the first of our five-part "Winter Sleeps" virtual series. View the other events below.
