Jurassic Fact of the Week!

Ok, we have another new addition to our information line-up....Jurassic Fact of the Week. Each week we will be posting info on a party animal, a party presenter, or maybe just a party itself. Our goal is to get more information out on how totally completely super awesome our parties are! So, our first fact is about one of our presenters...the cunning Kayla!

Kayla's Fact:

(speaking about her presentations)

"I'm big on education, so I like to bring a boa, a python, and a colubrid. I ask for 3 volunteers, and have each kid hold a snake, then teach them the differences between the families."

How cool! Kayla, keep up the awesome work!

Frequent Visitors

Here at The Reptile Zoo we adore the familiar faces that enjoy weekly visits to see, hold, and learn about our awesome animals.  Today I saw little 4-year-old Jaclyn...who just LOVES to hold our sweet ball pythons and leopard geckos.  Her dad says she is even getting a Red-tail Boa for her 5th birthday!  I think that's awesome to be a herper that early.  She's so brave and very gentle with all the animals.    :)

Thanks Jaclyn!  Hope to see you again soon!

Morph of the Month!

Time for a new section we like to call "Morph of the Month"...where we show you a different reticulated python morph every four weeks.  Today, Tim and Garrett showed me the Purple Tiger Goldenchild.  It is the FIRST one of its kind that we have created here at Prehistoric Pets.  He has deep orange sides, a purple-blue stripe down his back, and bright silver eyes...the ultimate albino.  What is really cool about him is that he can be bred to any albino female retic and 25% of the clutch will always be Purple Tiger Goldenchilds.  He's awesome!

Lynda Rules!

Hey Guys!

If you have ever been down to The Reptile Zoo, I'm sure you have seen and met most of the workers and managers and owners that have been here forever and helped you with your purchases, but there is one person that you may or may not have had the pleasure of meeting that seriously and in all honestly works harder than anyone else here and is single handedly responsible for the taking care of most our hurt and abandoned reptile friends.  Ladies and Gentle, I would like to introduce you to Lynda.

Lynda has been taking care of animals forever, she volunteers almost every minute of her life to the survival and well being of animals of all kinds.  She loves the tortoises, the beardies, the iguanas.  She goes to the shelters regularly to pick up any cute animals that are lonely or hurt and in need of assistance.  She uses her own money, knowledge, time and connections to save and rehabilitate almost everything she touches and I have no idea what we would do with out her.

She has a bearded dragon named Crazy Legs that has MBD and she actually made him a mobility aid out of an empty paper towel roll so that he can get the hang of making his little arm and legs work again.  Lynda is like Macgyver when it comes to making rehabilitation tools for animals that have been abandoned or not taken care of.  She is a miracle worker.  She has an ornate nile monitor named Cinderella that she has completely transformed into a beautiful princess!

Lynda know almost everything about reptiles, she serves as a guide, correspondant, and adoption assistant to several clubs that help to relocate and house tortoises, turtles and iguanas.

I think we, all of us at The Reptile Zoo are constantly in awe of Lynda and all she does, and we when grow up we wanna be just like her! 

Saving the world, one cold-blooded friend at a time!

We love you Lynda!  Thank you for all you do!
