12/9/2013 - Dec 17 - The Lizard Guys at county library
Returning to the Cumberland County Library on Tuesday, December 17 at 6:30 p.m. are the enormously entertaining Lizard Guys.
Back by popular demand, The Lizard Guys, a New Jersey based educational entertainment group that provides live animal presentations with lizards, snakes, turtles, frogs & various bugs. The presentation lasts approximately 60 minutes & consists of 6-10 animals. The audience is introduced to each animal, generally one at a time, by one of The Lizard Guys holding it & explaining where the animal would come from, its normal diet, its life expectancy and answering any other questions thrown his/her way. The Lizard Guys has performed over 20,000 presentations for children & adults of all ages over the last 14 years.
The Lizard Guys is a small group of animal enthusiasts who are "kid-friendly". The Lizard Guys consist of the same full-time presenters since its inception in 1995 because of their ability to not only educate but to both entertain and control various sized groups of children & adults.
The 1 ½- and 2-year-olds will learn an overview of reptiles, amphibians & bugs and show how they differ from us. They will be encouraged to participate by counting the animals' legs and by "hiding in their shell" like a turtle.
The 3- and 4-year-olds, will learn words like camouflage and nocturnal. They will also learn about a typical "day-in-the-life" of our animals such as what they eat & their normal habitat.
The 5-year-olds and over, they will learn more grown-up words like carnivore, herbivore & supercalafragilisticexpialidocious.
The 9- to 90-year-olds, will learn from & be entertained by the live reptiles.
