Library Hosts Reptile Show
Mar. 12, 2018
Orland Park Public Library will be hosting “Bubba” the 8 foot long over 200 lb. alligator on Saturday, April 14 at 2 p.m. and his caregiver and animal rescuer, Jim Nesci.
“Bubba” the alligator is a phenomenon! He is the only alligator in North America who can take and respond to commands from his trainer according to Nesci. “Bubba” was a rescue from the Chicago area, and is Nesci’s pride and joy.
Nesci will visit the library to show children the proper way to handle animals with attention to detail while creating a positive learning environment. Library patrons interested in seeing the alligator, snakes, lizards, and a tortoise should bring their children. Nesci uses his guidance and expertise to explore the world of reptiles. Children will learn many unknown facts about this misunderstood and little known world of creatures. The main message of this presentation is to conserve and protect reptiles understanding the importance of reptiles in the natural world.
