Jesse Rothacker lives with 100 live reptiles and 3 humans, so every day is a new story. Whether he’s blaming a Gila monster for ruining the coffee, or forgetting to tell his wife about the alligator in the bathtub, you never know what mess he’ll get into next. Come meet some of the cold-blooded critters that are Jesse’s housemates, and hear some of Jesse’s real life stories from his three decades of reptile rescue. We’ll also highlight some fictional reptile stories, and inspire the audience to create reptile stories of their own.
Jesse is the founder and president of Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit reptile rescue and education organization. Each year Forgotten Friend finds homes for unwanted pet reptiles and provides environmental education programs for thousands of families.
Event registration is required. This is a Live Zoom Event. A Zoom link will be emailed to you before the event.
