REPTILE SHED SIGNATURE DISPLAY (Animal Signatures® Clue Display).

ITEM #: T-22043
PRICE: $29.95

Resource Description
REPTILE SHED SIGNATURE DISPLAY (Animal Signatures® Clue Display). Acorn Naturalists. Just as we learn to identify the handwriting of others, we can learn to read signatures left by wildlife. This unique 6” x 8” glass-topped display provides real examples of these animal clues from wild areas and even parks and school grounds. With this display, students learn that reptiles shed their skin as they grow, leaving behind sheds that offer clues about the size and in some cases, the species, of reptile. This display contains a small complete snake shed shown being removed by a snake scraping along rough-edged rocks, plus a section of a large snake shed. All samples have been hand collected. Ages 9–adult. #T-22043.

Additional information: (quoted from the label on the back of the display)

"Our skin cells shed constantly, but reptiles cast off their old skin all at once. Once a reptile is ready to shed, it brushes up against rough rocks or other hard surfaces and twists upside down to put more pressure on the nose area, rubbing until the old skin tears. The old skin is then pushed down past the nose and face. As the reptile proceeds to squeeze through rocks or along bark, the skin slowly rolls past the jaws and down along the body. The small, complete shed in this display is a first shed of a young snake while the larger piece is from an adult snake."
