Then and Now

I was elated to find and buy from a thrift store, a rare copy of the first reptile booklet produced by the park in the late 1950s. It made for interesting reading with its archaic nomenclature and handling procedures however even more fascinating is that since then the number of species reported in the park has increased, with turtles doubling from 3-6 and snakes from 6-9. Although some species are rare and others no longer seen, it raises speculation about the factors between then and now.
