This is the first time we gave herpetlogical
lecture in a school. We believe it is also
the first time in Hong Kong. Within the
one-hour lecture class, we talked about
features, basic knowledge, and differences
between the reptiles, amphibians and arthropods.
The concept and details of captive care,
husbandry and conservation about the three
were also covered. Simultaneously, slideshows
and live reptiles were demonstrated for
watching closely and even touching properly.
In the first few minutes of the lecture,
the students (who were currently having
their open exams) seemed rather inattentive.
Before long, however, they could not help
but to take breathless interest in the lecture,
actively participating in listening with
full attention, observing the live animals
with much interest. After our President
received a banner souvenir from the vice
principal of the school, loud applause marked
the end of the lecture successfully.
