Welcome back Herpers of the world!! Here at The Reptile Zoo we strive to educate and help reptile lovers experience the many different varieties these special creatures offer. Whether your across the universe or down the street, we keep you guys informed and included in all the workings that is Prehistoric Pets/ The Reptile Zoo thru our Youtube video channels, Facebook page and our Official websites. But what about all the cool new stuff in the Zoo you may not have noticed?! Well WATCH OUT cause here theyyy coommee!!! =P
Starting off on the smaller end of the spectrum, we have here our NEW Crested Gecko, replacing our beloved "Stickers". Crested Geckos make fantastic first pets for just about any age. As long as you handle with care and sensitivity, this little critter will have you going "Ga Ga" over his marshmallow puff body and ity bitty tongue! Easy to clean, and even easier to feed, our little "Loki" looks forward to his new future in the Reptile Zoo! Come Check him out!
Next in line were greeted by the Spaz-tastic duo, our baby Blue Iguanas! The Blue Iguana is one of the longest-living species of lizard, with a record of longest living lizard at age 67!!! The Blue Iguana's toes are said to be efficient in digging and climbing trees, they also have excellent vision, which allows them to detect shapes and motions at long distances! Check out their cousins with different color variations too!
Up next, everyone's favorite Prima Donna pet, the Veiled Chameleon! They have a flattened body meant to mimic a leaf and feet designed for grasping limbs and branches. They have a tail that acts as a fifth appendage and helps in climbing. Their eyes work independently of one another allowing the chameleon to look in front of and behind itself at the same time!! They have a long sticky tongue that they use to capture their insect and are capable of lying still for very long periods of time waiting for an unsuspecting bug to wander by!
On the much bigger side of the spectrum, we bring to you a Albino LABYRINTH Burmese Python! These beautiful snakes show the pattern of the labyrinth Burmese and the color of the albino. They have become one of the most sought after morphs of this species even though it has only been around since 1993!!
Last but never least, we have the Madagascan Tree Boa! A male will coil its lower body around a tree limb, leaving the top half suspended to fight its adversary, but the species will spend more of its time on the ground than up in a tree, especially the larger adult snakes. The young snakes spend a significant portion of their day in trees and the snake does the majority of its hunting in an arboreal setting, searching for such prey as birds and bats.
Hopefully this little blog made your mouth water with anticipation for your next visit to the Reptile Zoo!! Go hunting to see of you can spot these 'featured creatures' in our Zoo, as well as any other NEW reptiles we may have in store for YOU!!
