Young children in a La Cañada Flintridge summer camp had some strange and colorful visitors on Thursday morning.

The Reptile Family’s Matt Steinberg stopped by the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge with lizards, snakes and turtles. Children took turns petting the reptiles and posing with the creatures on their arms.
