Stamps Come Alive at the Spellman: Snakes

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Nature comes to the Spellman as the Museum celebrates National Stamp Collecting Month and its Stamps Come Alive series. Join us as we welcome Dr. Van Wallach of the Harvard Museum of Natural History who will present “Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Snakes But Were Afraid to Ask.” Several live snakes will be presented, including a boa, some local snakes, and some exotic species, as well as an exhibit of his collection of snakes on stamps, which he hopes will qualify to be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records. Dr. Wallach is an American herpetologist who has contributed to the descriptions of at least 46 species of snakes and has conducted fieldwork on tropical snakes in the Philippines, Nicaragua, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Tickets will be sold at the door but advanced reservations are suggested.
