Need Something To Do Thursday?


Sure, most guys who run around with reptiles are a little off. They're generally spotted with snakes wrapped around their curiously bare shoulders, hanging out on the streets without any apparent purpose.

But Corbin Maxey isn't your typical shirtless reptilian weirdo. The 22-year-old has made a name for himself as an animal expert, earning spots on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and The Today Show, as well as the moniker "The Reptile Guy." Though he might look a bit like your brother's roommate in college, this guy obviously knows his stuff.

You can meet Maxey and some of his cold-blooded friends today at Boise Public Library's downtown branch. From 2-3 p.m. in the Hayes Auditorium, Maxey will talk animals with children ages 6-11 and their families.
