The Reptile Man

As part of our library's series of summer events, The Reptile Man puts on a show. He is very popular.
Here is an albino snake that snatched a very real looking toy rat from The Reptile Man's hand.

This year was our first time to see The Reptile Man and Avery was chosen from the crowd to be a helper! I wish I was ready in time to get video of Avery going up on stage because he literally danced his way up there he was so excited.

Avery gets a bit of a surprise...

And the boa gets a little frisky...

We waited until we were towards the end of the crowd to exit so the boys could pet the albino burmese python a bit longer.

Instead of petting and walking on by, I think Avery ducked under and nudged his way in to be a holder.

The boys can't wait to see him again next year!

I absolutely love the video with Avery moving side to side as he realizes what is there. He was a really good sport and didn't peak.
However, I'm glad it was him and NOT me.
