Poor SLJ!

Now at Our Academy of Sciences: It’s “Snakes & Lizards: The Summer of Slither” – Runs Through September 5, 2011

Hey, it’ll be a slithery summer 2011 at our California Academy of Sciences due to Snakes & Lizards: The Summer of Slither.

Check the video from Jennifer Olney. And here’s some local coverage from Jessica Bernstein-Wax up Marin way. Oh, and SFGate got in there last month to check things out.

Found in the Amazon basin, the emerald tree boa has multiple highly sensitive heat-sensing organs that it uses for 3-D thermal imaging of prey. It is strikingly similar–in color pattern and in the way it drapes itself on branches–to the green tree python from Australia and New Guinea. © D. Finnin/AMNH

Get all the deets after the jump.
