Searching for Creepy Crawlies in the Arizona Desert

Goodnight UConn! We’re heading back into the wilderness to do some night herping to find some snakes. Thanks for coming with us on our trip! You can keep up with all of our desert adventures by following us @uconnherping

A group of UConn students are in Arizona’s Sonora Desert this week, looking for lizards, snakes, scorpions, and Gila monsters. They’re members of the UConn Herpetological Society, and on May 19, they did a day-long takeover of the University’s Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/uconn/

For those who may not follow Instagram, here are their photos and captions:

The Instagram takeover is part of a summer-long social media campaign – #MyUConnSummer – that invites UConn students to be featured on UConn social media:

UConn students – What are you doing this summer? We’d love to hear about your travels, summer jobs, internships, and adventures to cross items off your bucket list. Share your photos (or videos) with us for a chance to be featured on UConn social media. Email photos and captions to connect@uconn.edu.
