What a wild night with the Chicago Herpetological Society at our March Pack meeting! I hope everyone had fun squirming with the snakes, lizards, and frogs.
The President of the CHS, Rich Crowley, had so much great information to share about these amazing creatures. I expect you learned something new, and many held a snake entirely on your own!
Mr. Crowley also bestowed on Pack 99 the honor of officially naming one of their new snakes. Our selection will be announced at the upcoming ReptileFest — the Nation’s largest educational reptile show — on April 13-14 at Northeastern Illinois University!
Our job is to brainstorm as a Pack names for the snake, pictured below, that we all had the chance to meet & greet at our Pack meeting. Remember? It was half albino and half with multi-color patterns. So cool!
Please include your scout’s suggested name for the snake in the comments below, post on our Facebook group, or email the Cubmaster as soon as possible. Once we have a good collection of names in, I will post an online ballot for everyone to cast a vote for their favorite name.
If you are interested in attending ReptileFest on April 13 or 14, please let me know ASAP so we can coordinate a group. Mr. Crowley is offering our Pack a special group rate discount for the tickets that are normally priced at $8 for ages up to 11 and $12 for 11+.
So, get those thinking caps on and let’s hear some awesome ideas for names for this unique snake!
To more adventure!
