100% Online | Live class | 8 week program | Offered every Fall semester.

Snakes, lizards, turtles, and others comprise one of the most fascinating groups of vertebrates — the reptiles. There is hardly a group which inspires as much wonder, awe, and fear as this one. This course provides an exploration into reptiles beginning with how they arose on earth, and then discussing what they have been up to since they got here. Global biodiversity will be discussed in detail, exploring the major groups and their relationships to each other. The anatomy and physiology will be explored, as well as the ecological role of reptiles in keeping our environments healthy.

Critters & Cabernet image

In-person (Atlanta) | 2 hour program | First Friday of every month

This is the 21+ version of our popular children's program — Critter Camp. C & C is a casual learning experience in series format, so we focus on a specific topic or group of animals each session. — 'Reptiles and Wine — What could go wrong?'

Each Critters and Cabernet session lasts for 2 hours, and includes lessons mixed with live animal demonstrations and handling (if desired). There is, of course, no obligation to hold animals if you do not wish. The sessions occur in our glorious classroom, on the second floor of the Amphibian Foundation.

Instructors are Team Venom! AF's Venomous Training & Certification Instructors, who provide the venomous training later that weekend.
