Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – “Snakes are unfairly persecuted in ways that are not tolerated for other animals, either domestic or wildlife.” said Dr. Chris Gienger, a herpetology professor at Austin Peay State University.

Herpetology is the branch of zoology which deals with the study of reptiles and amphibians such as snakes, turtles, and iguanas.

Austin Peay State University offering 2014 study abroad trip to Galapagos Islands

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On an overcast afternoon in August, Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo, Austin Peay State University associate professor of Spanish, stood on a beach in the Galapagos Islands and watched ocean waves crash against black, volcanic rocks. A few feet away, a marine iguana prepared to go for a swim.

The creature was a bit larger than the lizards Di Paolo might find at home in Clarksville, but it was nothing compared to the giant, 800-pound tortoises he saw earlier that day.
