Jeff Corwin (and a few of his friends) stopped by to talk (and scare) Katie.
First up was Katie’s favorite, a reptile.
“I don’t usually get this cozy with my guests – but, honestly – yikes,” Katie said.
“Don’t tell me you’re looking at a nice pair of boots,” Jeff responded.
Can you guess what the animal was?
It was an alligator. Fred the Alligator, to be exact.
Next up was something a little less scary, but an equally impressive reptile -- the largest freshwater turtle in the Americas known as the Alligator Snapping Turtle.
“We don’t even know how long they live,” he said.
This particular reptile is 30-40 years old. The one Jeff brought with him was rescued from Hurricane Katrina and found on an old country road in Texas.
The last creature Jeff presented to the crowd was a lizard: a Black-Throated Monitor.
The lizard uses his tongue to pick up microscopic particles. And to scare the living daylights out of Katie.
