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!

Snake Robots!

Hey Guys!

Remember the other day when I was telling you guys about the people from the California Academy of Science coming by?  (see Boa Babies Blog)  Well, I think I just discovered something amazing!  Snake Robots!  It seems that there is a lot of research ongoing right now about how to make a robot that moves like a snake so as to be helpful in disasters and the like!  Snakes can get into places that humans usually cannot! (don't we all know that :) and it is about time the scientific community realized the amazing contributions that the study of our scaley legless friends can bring to the table!  Here's a lil bit of video!  Think of all the amazing things we could with this!  Snakes saving lives!!!  Yeeehaaa!  Then maybe the general population will have a little more respect for them!

Two Newbies!!

Happy TWOsday!  from The Reptile Zoo...

I'm Thalia, the newest animal handler and future herp-obsessed member of the team!  I'm going to be your link to what's going on here at The Reptile Zoo while Savannah is off.  I love it here, and I am learning SOOOOO much!  So for my first blog...there's a couple pics of Mandy catching me in action, cleaning the Sand Boa cage, PLUS I have some awesome pics of our other newbie, REGGIE, the Crocodile Monitor.  We just got him TODAY!  He's 8 months, captive-bred, and gorgeous!  You just wanna give him a big hug...of course Jay is the only one who can because he's actually very dangerous...sigh.  Right now he's about 4-5 feet long, but they can get up to 13 feet...they are more than half tail.  :-D

We can't decide if we want to sell him, or keep him...his coloring is just so beautiful.  So come see him, because he might not be here for long!!!
