Goodness snakes alive: animals visit Notre Dame

Riley Brueck, Logan Lowe, Maisey Belger, Sarah Meeker, Katie Jackson, Garrett Brockway, Kallee Orth and Abigail McAtee hold “Sweetie Pie,” a baby, nonaggressive snake.

 On Oct. 18, students had the opportunity to participate in an amazing assembly. They could not only learn about reptiles and arachnids, but also got to see and hold several of the animals.

Students learned anacondas are constrictors that are found in South America and that the animals can grow to be the most massive snakes in the world.

Notre Dame is very grateful to S&J Tube of Mediapolis, which paid for this assembly to come to Notre Dame.
