Sam X 2

Hey Guys!

I just want you guys to see the funny thing I got to see when Sam was trying to take his new Facebook default pic!  He got a double dose from one of our retics, Tim had to help him clean it all up!  I think Sam finally did get a good picture when it was all done!  I know I sure did!  Tim was laughing so hard.  It's such a great place to be here at The Reptile Zoo, you just really never know what will happen!  All so exciting!

much love

Hey guys!

Wanna see a few awsome pictures that just didn't make the mark?  Pictures that are beautiful but might have a flaw here and there?  It is very hard for all the reptile models around here to keep up appearances and to look fabulous 24/7 but some how they pull it off without making it seem like work...

ps... if there are ever any errors in the pics it is always the human photographer and not the reptile models discretion

BumbleBee v. Starscream

Hey Guys!

WE have 2 beautiful sulfur monitors here at The Reptile Zoo, well actually we have many more but we have 2 VIP monitors here and one is named BumbleBee ad one is named Starscream.  Now you might ask yourself if Jay is a big Transformer fan and the answer to that is no, at least I've never heard him talk about Transformers and he didnt' dress as Optimus Prime for halloween or anything so I'm guessing he's not into Transformers.  We, however, the staff here at The Reptile Zoo are kinda fans of the Transformers, especially the Dino-bots.... because they were the most awesome ever!

So we named this one monitor BumbleBee because he's sweet and nice and polite and pretty and friendly with the kids and never ever tries to bite us like Starscream does!  Starscream wants us all dead at all times, but he is an amazing breeder and BumbleBee is well, he's not so good at such things, he gets distracted very easily and has a hard time keeping on task.

We love them both!  They are such beauties, if you haven't had the chance to come by and see them yet, please make sure you do!  Until then here are some classic photos of Transformers and Monitors! (and Dinobots)

much love

Hey Guys!

Just want to give you a quick peek at how the Archiving has been going, I'm still super busy scanning everything into the computer but here are a couple of pictures of what's to come!  The pink flier is from a promotion Jay did with Bob Clark, the cute little girl growling in the cage is Juliette who is now a lead here at Prehistoric Pets, funny that she used to be small enough to fit into a teeny cage, and the last pic is of Jay's beautiful wife Becky with an iguana.  I will try and get as many new pics scanned in as possible over the next few days so you guys all stand by to see the entire growth and transformation into what has now become Prehistoric Pets that you all know and love today! 


Much love

Stand by!

Here are some new work photos!

the best place on earth


Hi my name is Ben

I am 11 years old, and these are the things I think about The Reptile Zoo.

·       It’s the best place that I have ever been in 11 years.

·       I think this place has the best number one snakes in the world.

·       I think Jay is a great person and he teaches me how to work with snakes.

·       I think Twinkie is a sweet snake, but when I first got in her cage I was a little worried but she was nice.

·       Retics and ball pythons are my favorite snakes.

·       I think Savannah is cool, because she is writing this.

·       I like the way the cages in The Reptile Zoo are really creative.

·       Linda is a great woman and she takes the best care of the animals and I like people like that.

·       I like the alligator cage that is getting set up and I hope Jay gets the glass to set the alligators up soon.

·       There is no other place that I like better than The Reptile Zoo.

·       I think Tim O’Reilly is really good with the retics and he lets me hold the nicer ones.

·       When I grow up I wanna become a herpetologist.

·       I think Kayla is a great employee and also works well with the snakes up front.

·       Everything here is fun I would like to quit school and stay here.
