Today I brought a resident to biology brown bag. For those of you who don’t know, these are presentations where students and professors bring in a lunch and listen to a speech by a professor (or occasionally a biology student) regarding research. Today, John Peterson gave a speech about amphibians and reptiles! Ben was a little grossed out (as shown in the pic below). This is a really cool opportunity, as there is a room full of biology professors which can open you up to new experiences. I asked Ben what he thought the most interesting part was and he said that it was crazy that when the hognose snake feels threatened, it will bite itself to produce blood, poop, and play dead. We got to see it on video and it was insane! If anyone would like to come to brown bag in the future, I’ve attached dates!
