One of the unsung pleasures of the late 20th century is that we spend very little time wondering whether snakes can really milk cows or form hoops with their bodies and roll down hills. Yet fear and misunderstanding still linger in our ideas about reptiles. “Reptilia,” an exhibition featuring an array of live reptiles, debunks most of the myths about our scaly brothers and sisters today at 11 a.m. & 1 p.m. at the Harmony Hall Regional Center, 10701 Livingston Rd., Fort Washington. $3.
