The Calusa Herpetological Society
Of Southwest Florida

Thursday, March 5, 2009  - 7:00 pm


TONIGHT’S  MEETING :   Tonight’s speaker is the Calusa Herpetological Society’s own vice president, Kathy Love  of  CornUtopia in Alva, Florida.  Kathy has bred corn snakes since the mid-1980s --- about a quarter of a century!  Their beauty and diversity captured her fascination early in her career, leading her to choose them as her primary project species.  She continues to be a major player in keeping corn snakes at the forefront of herpetoculture, and maintaining their position as the most popular pet serpent on the planet.  Kathy has built a colorful PowerPoint presentation to cover the Rise of Corn Snakes as Pets, including a history of their domestication, a brief look at keeping and breeding them, and an up-to-date look at their variety today.  If you have any kind of question about corn snakes, including finding out the sex of your pet(s), bring them out tonight and ask the “Corn Snake Queen” in person.  Kathy will also have a couple of her prettiest specimens on hand to show off, and copies of her two books available for sale (or bring your copies to be autographed).

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 !
