Reptile and Amphibian Study Merit Badge

Here's a merit badge that was half fun and half hard. It was the Reptile and Amphibian Study Merit badge. I had to learn about different kinds of reptiles and amphibians, like I think I'm going to make a chart or just make a call en bar to show you how each one is in the reptile and amphibian families. Like there is mostly groups in the reptile family. the groups of reptiles are listed in Snakes, Lizards, Turtles, Alligators, and Tuataras. And the Ambhibian family is Frogs, toads, newts, and salamanders.

Then I went to the Hogel Zoo (that's in Utah) to see what was inside the Reptile and Amphibian house. It stunk really bad in there. We saw lots of different snakes, crocodiles, turtles, and other kinds. Then we had to study the reptile or amphibain mostly. Like we studied mostly about the Sand Boa. The snake that loves to hide in the sand. We went to the Hogel Zoo for almost every week in a month to see the Sand Boa. When we keep seeing it, it kept on disappearing. That's strange, huh?
The Reptile and Amphibian Study merit badge wasn't at all fun, because sometimes you have to do a lot of studying on each of these. I might say it next time on the Mammal Study merit badge.
