This snake is one of many interesting animals that visitors may meet at the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray on June 13. The Maine Wildlife Park in Gray will host Herpetology Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 13. Visitors can get up close and personal with a variety of live reptiles from the Maine Herpetological Society. Founded in 1992 to promote responsible care of captive reptiles and amphibians, HMS educates its members and the general public on all aspects of ‘herpetoculture’ and native habitat preservation. The group encourages reptile and amphibian conservation through captive breeding, rather than collecting wild specimens. They share information with a monthly newsletter, meetings and their Facebook page. Several live native and legally permitted non-native snakes and other reptiles will be on display to view, learn more about and photograph. FMI:
