Josh Minor, an educator with the Toledo Zoo, brought some snakes Tuesday to Panna Rupp's Spanish class at Central Catholic High School. Rupp's students recently read the novel Anaconda by South American author Horacio Quiroga. The book is written entirely in Spanish. The main characters in the book are snakes that band together to fight the invasion of man in the snake world.
