Herpetology

So I tackled the paper with style and finished Monday morning at around 4:00am.  Done. Success. Great.

Now there’s Herpetology Lab. The exam is tomorrow and for this particular exam we have to know the Class, Order, Suborder, Family, Subfamily and Genus species of 68 different specimens (i.e. Dead snakes)

We’ve already covered, Caecilians, Frogs, Toads, Salamanders, Lizards, Turtles and Crocodilians, now all that’s left are the Snakes and Amphisbaenians.

(Caecilians are strange amphibian creatures with no limbs that are usually fossorial-which means lives underground, and Amphisbaenians are strange, also limbless lizard like creatures that also usually live underground) *Just in case you were wondering.* A few months ago I’d never heard of them either.

Then the Herpetology Lecture exam is Wednesday. Fun. I need an A in the this class. I LOVE reptiles, but jeez I’m pressed for time here.

Sincerely,

Wish me luck dear friends!

Melanie
