HERPETOLOGIC VERSE: REPTILES


   
 

        
PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, April 2019. Today's verses have been finally accepted for web-publication at OEDILF.com, an online humour dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited poems. 

PHOTOS: Unless otherwise noted, embedded photographs were taken with and transferred from Giorgio's cellphone, then formatted using ancient Powerpoint software. No photographic subjects were reimbursed for participating in this undertaking. 

BACKGROUND:  "herpetology" - the branch of zoology dealing with reptiles and amphibians. Readers should note that snakes have been omitted from this poetic idyll owing to the marked aversion by the editor's life-partner. 

And, for those interested here's a list of our whole collection of posts related to Nature ...

Verses about Geysers, Sep '18
Verses about Amphibians, Jan '19
Verses about Trees, Apr '19
