Python Ron – also known as Ron McGee – brought his Reptile Kingdom to the Escalon Public Library for a pair of shows on Friday, June 10 as part of the Summer Reading Program. Here, he shows his Columbian red tailed boa, Julius Squeezer, to a crowd of appreciative youngsters during a roughly 45-minute presentation. Along with snakes, spiders and lizards, McGee offered information about all the reptiles and many youngsters had the chance to meet them, up close and personal.
