: The photograph shows a Cleveland Metroparks naturalist or employee showing a snake to a group of children inside of the Rocky River Reservation Nature Center. The snake the park ranger is holding appears to be a black rat snake (Elaphe obsoleta). The naturalist is giving a lecture about the reptile to the children, while standing in front of a fire place with a fish fossil in the mantle.
The museum also features some fossils and a plaque on the wall reads the following: "This museum is devoted to the work of helping visitors to this park to a better understanding of the plant and animal life of the Rocky River valley. Your questions will be gladly answered by the trailside naturalist in charge."
