Did you know that Wednesday is Reptile Awareness Day? Reptiles like turtle, snakes, and lizards are near and dear to our hearts. In honor of Reptile Awareness Day, we’re dedicating this week’s emails to reptiles and focusing on some very special programming and artwork highlighting them!
John Agnew is an artist of the natural world. He has drawn and painted reptiles of all sorts, and we’re excited to showcase some of his beautiful crocodilian scratchboards at the Nature Museum.
