Merch & Moss Balls

I talk alot in here about all the fun we have because for real, it is all fun, but there is a work park too.  That's the part where we don't get to play with the animals and kids!  That's the part where we (i say we, I really mean Jay, Juliette & Sam) actually have to sit in meetings and buy merchandise to sell so that all the pets you guys take home can have the best care ever!  Without those sales meetings, pricing, and merchandise we wouldn't be able to feed all the hungry mouths in this place, and believe me, there are more mouths than you could count!  We also wouldn't be able to hire the people, like me, that clean the cages, feed the mouths, water the mouths, vaccuum the floors, breed the the big snakes, write the blogs and take the pictures!  Actually, without the sales of our merchandise we wouldn't be able to do alot of the wonderful and innovative things we are always in the process of working on!  If you are a valued customer, thank you for that, and if you shop somewhere else, next time, please consider coming by here!!!!  We would love to see you!

Today I learned about some new product called moss balls..... well, i didn't really learn, but i did think the name was pretty funny!  Anybody know what a moss ball is??????

hahaha

much love!

Baby Chameleons!

We have had a bunch of baby veiled chameleons here for a while now and we are growing them up so that we can give them a great home soon!  This morning we had a visit from one of our favorite kids who was dying to hold one of "the little rascals" as he so eloquently puts it, and we always aim to please here at the Reptile Zoo!!!!  The more people come to visit us, the more we get to know them and they eventually become part of our family too.  A pet is a lifetime investment and we like to share with you all and be part of the ride!  We love it when people take home pets from here and then bring them back by to visit us when the come to pick up feeders, be that crickets, worms, pre-packaged food or mice.  The animals, the customers, the kids and even the grandparents all become part of our big and growing family here!  And we love you all...

but we are especially fond of you Ross!!!!  And we are so glad you decided to have a Jurassic Party here so we could all get to know you!  See you again soon we hope!

Much love

The Money Shot!

We have a photo booth here at the Reptile Zoo and I have to tell you guys that I never realized that photography was such hard work!!!!!  Throw 3 kids plus animals all together in one photo and it takes click after click after click to get just the right shot!  It's always fun, don't get me wrong, but the fact of the matter is the animals are way more fun to look at than the photographer, add to that a mom standing behind that photographer trying to get them to smile, and not fake smile, leads to pic after pic that's not perfect, and then finally one that is.  In this era of photoshop, and other editing tools, I thought you guys might like to see some raw photos encompassing a few of the funnier situations that eventually lead to the money shot!

Much Love

A really mean blog!

 

So, we get phone calls here all the time from people that have questions about reptiles and we try to do the best we can to help everyone but today I received the most upsetting phone call yet and I’m very sad about it.  I’m going to transcribe it for you all so you can see what we, and by “we” I mean all of us reptile lovers have to deal with.

 

Me:  Thank you for calling The Reptile Zoo, this is Savannah, How may I help you?

Caller:  Yeah, my neighbor lost his snake and I think it’s in my house because I found some poop in my closet.

Me:  Ok, how can I help?

Caller:  Well, I saw on TV that sometimes people can inspect the poop and figure out what kind of snake it was?

Me:  I’m sorry; we don’t do any poop inspections here.

Caller:  Well, there’s a snake in my house!

Me:  Sir, as long as there is not a food source there the snake will leave on his own.

Caller:  I don’t have mice in my house!!!!!!

Me:  I’m sorry sir, I wasn’t trying to say that you did, I was simply stating that a snake will not stay in your house unless it can find water and food.

Caller:  I did find a shed in my bathroom.

Me:  Than clearly sir there is a food source somewhere because snakes shed every time they grow and they cannot grow without food.  I’m not trying to say you have mice in your house they could be in your back yard or maybe he was eating before he got into your house.

Caller:  Well what do I do?

Me:  Do you know what kind of snake it is?

Caller:  Yes, it’s a gopher snake; it crawled across my foot the other night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me:  Sir I don’t really know how I can help other than to tell you that a gopher snake is not poisonous and you should be fine, and the snake will leave when he no longer has a food source.

Caller:  Well when I catch him I am going to kill him and cut him up into little pieces and put him on my neighbor’s front porch.

Me:  Why would you do that?

Caller:  Because my neighbor is irresponsible.

Me:  But Sir, your neighbor’s irresponsibility is not the snake’s fault, that snake is just trying to live, and he’s doing you a favor by clearing out the rodent’s in your home.

Caller:  Who cares?  It’s just a snake?  And I will slice him up and…………………………………………

Me:  Dial Tone

Dusting Dinosaurs!

Early morning here at the Reptile Zoo and all is a buzz with lights, camera, and action!!!  We are filming today for what will hopefully be our television show and everyone has been cleaning and dusting and getting things ready for the camera crew and then later for all the kiddies coming here for Jurassic Parties and such!  In the process of cleaning Rosa was dusting a dinosaur and found a marbled gecko named Picky who had been living behind a picture of some frogs and decided to move into the Dino's mouth!!!  Rosa caught him and we put him in the cricket drawer and let him eat and eat and eat and then we put him back in hisclean and dusted Dino mouth home! 

Check out the pics!

Much love!
