Twin Falls residents touch and feel reptiles at CSI

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Amid the cold weather, some community residents decided to hang out with some cold blooded creatures at the College of Southern Idaho.

At the "Reptile Revue," which takes place on the first and third Tuesday every month at the Herrett Center on the CSI campus, allows individuals to learn about and touch real reptiles. Coordinator at the Herrett Center and of the event Kindy Combe says that it's a great opportunity to spend time with the family and that it helps shatter preconceived notions some may have about reptiles.

"It get's them excited about animals in general, especially reptiles," Combe said. "Reptiles are really misunderstood animals, so it does teach them about them, kind of to overcome fears."

Attendee and volunteer at the Reptile Revue, Aurelia James, says she participates in the event due to her love of the creatures.

"I just love their colors, and how big they get and just everything about them," she said.

If you'd like to participate in the next Reptile Revue, you're in luck. The event is free of charge to everyone, and the next one will be at the Herrett Center on CSI Campus, March 5 at 6 p.m.
