The Gleason Family YMCA was a zoo on Wednesday morning, at least briefly.

In the middle of school vacation week, nearly 100 kids with parents in tow packed into the Y’s gymnasium for a reptile show.

Joe Kenney, owner of Craz-zy Critters, wowed kids with live iguanas, boa constrictors and other reptiles. Kenney provided facts about each animal and then gave kids a closer look, bringing some of the reptiles around to be touched.
