On October 23, Larry Jones gave an informative, and fun, presentation titled “Venomous Animals of North America: A Plethora of Pictures of Pain-producing Predators and Prey.” The pictures of some of these animals were indeed spectacular. The biology and behavior of many of these creatures is fascinating. They may be beautiful yet deadly. Fortunately, Larry also discussed safety concerns and approaches to help people avoid harmful encounters. It was a very interesting talk, with 40 people in attendance.
