The Calusa Herpetological Society
Of Southwest Florida

Thursday, August 5, 20107:00 pm

SPEAKER & TOPIC : Ivan Alfonso, DVM is coming down from central Florida to share ‘A Day in the Life of a Veterinarian’, and the emphasis will be on herpetological subjects.  Dr. Alfonso runs Kirkman Area Animal Clinic in Orlando and has always had a special attraction for and interest in treating reptiles and amphibians.  In his PowerPoint presentation, he’ll take us behind the scenes on a tour of just what a vet contends with in dealing with the multitude of herp pets that he sees.  This will be a visual treat designed to share the intricacies of a profession that’s becoming more important as the herp hobby grows and calls upon the same kind of services we all seek routinely for our traditional mammal and bird pets.

WHO'S INVITED ? You are! Anyone with an interest in any aspect of herpetology or herpetoculture is welcome to attend, learn, and exchange their experiences with our friendly membership. Come out to meet others who keep, breed or study reptiles and amphibians, and let them share their fascination with you. We average 35 – 70 people attending every meeting.

Cookies and cold soda, a nightly raffle of live herps, herp products, and books follow each speaker's talk, and lots of herp camaraderie, gossip, and fun can be counted upon at all meetings !
