The high school's science wing was abuzz today (10/13) with curious students and teachers excited to see a collection of wild creatures from all corners of the world.
Cairo Senior William Woods owns most of the animals, while others were borrowed from the Pet Stop in Thomasville. The Cairo High Senior says he wanted to use the creatures as a teaching tool for his classmates.
Though he has built a sizeable collection, Woods says he never loses sight of the fact that the animals are wild; as students entered the science lab, he gave them directions not to touch the creatures unless carefully supervised.
Woods says he has always loved reptiles, even as a young child.
Students and teachers agreed the exhibit was a fun, hands-on way to learn about different species.
