As part of the Clover bud program, Kentucky Reptile Zoo, was invited by Knox County Cooperative Extension Office to bring along some of their tamer friends to excite and educate the local youth.

Among the reptiles were a spur-thigh tortoise, a king snake, and the crowd favorite, a baby American Alligator named Jelly Bean. Kat Dale, of Kentucky Reptile Zoo, allowed the kids to get a close up view of the animals, discussed habitat and diets, and showed them proper behavior for when they encounter a reptile in the wild.
