When I was in reception I always remembered holding a giant snake at school (an olive). Loved it.
In highschool our biology teacher would bring in his reps and also take them to primary schools.
Wasn't until after I graduated I found a photo of the primary school day and realised it was the same teacher!
Best bloke! Made year 12 biology much more fun!
It was also no secret the rats and mice the year 8s bred to learn genetics were often used for snake food.
P.s, I'm not afraid of the woma in the photo, I'm laughing waiting my turn lol.
He would even GIVE reptiles (I believe generally blue tongues) he bred to students who got permission from their parents and showed a keen interest and would help with licensing.
He was a beauty. Not in a creepy way, at all, for the record. Just genuinely happy to continue the hobby.
Aww man why can't I have teachers like that!!
We learnt genetics through sheep and cows zzzzzzzzz
Would have been awesome to do breeding genetics or reptile genetics
We had to breed mice and have a hypothesis for what the babies would be like based on the parents and explain why rah rah rah.
You could keep the babies or your pair of you had parental permission.
I believe some older grades bred rats, but I never did. I used to visit and pat them though haha
Country SA education is pretty good it seems, who knew?!
We bred mice as well. And I took mine home.
They lasted in their little cage for ages, until we went on holiday and my nan didn’t feed and water them like she’d promised. Poor little things didn’t make it and I returned home to very dead mice.
As opposed to not so dead mice?
Yup. They were stiff as boards.
