I'm teaching a class on Georgia's indigenous snakes and reptiles for a home school co-op next semester. I would like to bring in some snakes so the kids can see some first hand. But I don't own any at the moment, and I'm unlikely to get set up anytime soon.

Does anyone here have any pet snakes or lizards (any non-venomous species), or do you know someone who would be willing to do a forty five minute presentation for a class?

Sounds like a field trip to a reptile store might be easier.

That is possible but field trips for this group would have to be during a non-class time and it's hard to get families to participate (even though the kids would like it). I do plan to recommend they stop by a pet store as their family's schedule permits. Or go to the zoo. But there is no "hands on" element there.

Go into the woods and banks of creeks near your house and flip over some logs.

You’ll find a snake, and odds are 9/10 that it will be non -venomous.

Odds are 9/10 that it will crap on you and bite you as you handle it for the first time, though...

Yes, but it's illegal to possess a non-venomous indigenous snake without a license. For the class, I don't care if we're looking at non-native species. I'd prefer to look at something the kids could actually buy as a pet.
