Anne Chambers (Ecology, Evolution and Behavior Graduate Program)

“Slithering serpents: biodiversity, natural history, and common misconceptions of snakes”

Do snakes really dislocate their jaws while feeding? How can you tell if a snake is dangerous? Are all snakes deaf? How did snakes evolve and what role do they play in an ecosystem? Get the answers to these questions and more during an evening exploring everything to do with snakes!

Q&A will follow the talk.

This event is held outside, so please dress for the weather and bring a chair or blankets to sit on. Talk will be moved indoors in case of inclement weather.

Neighborhood Science, an offshoot of Science Under the Stars, presents family-friendly talks at Austin Public Library branches across Austin.

Location: Howson Branch Library, 2500 Exposition Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703
