Friday Morning Science: A Morning with Turtles

Talk Turtl-y to Me

Cryptozoology, hippology (horses, not hippos), ichthyology and beyond. Science sure has some funny names for the study of Earth's creatures. The newest term to add to your ever-growing brain-tionary? Herpetology. Herpetology is the branch of zoology that is concerned with the study of amphibians and reptiles. The New Mexico Herpetological Society, founded at the University of New Mexico in 1963, promotes the scientific study of our great state's reptile and amphibian populations through education and events such as meetings, field trips and community outreach programs. This Friday, the society's president, Scott Bulgrin, will present "A Morning with Turtles" at the Esther Bone Memorial Library in Rio Rancho. Bulgrin will bring live turtles to the library for this free, all-ages program designed for anyone interested in learning about the life of a turtle and getting up close and personal with the shelly critters.
