Face your fears!

Last week we had Reptiles from the Berkshire Reptile Encounters come to our meeting. Some small, some bigger then our leaders. The event would not live to it name if some of our scout where not scared of the Reptiles that came. Some over came their fears and start off with a small Corn Snake working there way up to the Burmese python.

Everyone show true effort over to try and over come their fears to get involved. Lot of fun and huge thank you for Berkshire Reptile Encounters
