Snakes alive! We're putting the Hartlepool and East Durham retro spotlight on reptiles

Who knew! Reptile Awareness Day arrives next week and it’s a chance for people with a passion for snakes, lizards, turtles and terrapins to celebrate.

Thursday, 14th October 2021, 12:58 pm

The international day of celebration, on October 21, is designed to educate people about these amazing creatures and to highlight the ecological threats they face.

But it also gives us a chance to look at reptile scenes closer to home. We have snakes, lizards and more from the Central Library in York Road, Owton Mano Library and a Teddy Bear’s picnic in Horden in photos taken by the Hartlepool Mail over the years.

On the scale of things, it’s a retro feature with a difference so why not join us as we slither back in time.
