I've been at the Museum sooooo long - longer than many of our interns have been alive. I do a little bit of everything as part of my job: care for the animals, work with the keepers and other staff, spend time with guests. Lucky me!
I spend a lot of time behind-the-scenes, or here after hours, but if you really want to see me, you'll have to sign-up for a behind-the-scenes program.
I think it’s pretty clear what happened: Kent was in the hall when Aaron tried to hug him. Dodging, he tripped through the reptile room door where Sarah was training Lightning to clean snake cages. Lightning spooked and kicked a cage open. Jessi yelled “Ye gods! He kicks!”
Katy and Marilyn misheard her and ran, thinking she had spotted their worst fears “Warthogs! And ticks!”
Jill thought they must be running from that famous Bounty Hunter Boba Fett and ran to get her autograph book.
The snake left his open cage, thinking it’d be a good time to branch out and try some of Kimberly’s vegan lunch, when he crawled over Sherry who was lying on the ground– exhausted after placing an online order for 3000 multi colored chew sticks. (This is why Aaron needed the hug.) Annie, ever worried and prepared, heard the ruckus and ran out with gauze and antiseptic. She grabbed the snake and told Sherry to open the cupboard so he could have a snacky.
