SMITHTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – It might have been cute when you first got it, but now that snake, lizard, or alligator may be a little to much to handle. If that’s your situation, Saturday is the day for your day.
The Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown, Long Island will gladly take it off your hands as part of tomorrow’s Reptile and Amphibian Amnesty Day.
“Really, reptiles that are illegal pets. Reptiles that shouldn’t be pets in people’s houses. Reptiles that perhaps are venomous,” the center’s Janice Bendicksen told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs.
