Spending time with the family!

Hey guys!

If you haven't been to The Reptile Zoo in a while you are definately missing out!  All the animals are up and active and playing around because it's summer time!  I was lucky enough to spend alot of time with some really smart kids over the past few weeks and I can't wait to see you all again soon!  The kids that come here on a regular basis always become part of our family!  We love it and we hope you guys do too!

We are open everyday from 11 am until 8 pm except on Sundays we close at 6.  We all look forward to seeing you soon and being able to share our knowledge, love and passion for all our amazing creatures!

much love

Why is a Borneo Bateater called a Borneo Bateater??????

The answer to this question in well beyond my area of expertise, so, like any good writer, I’m going to make one up.  Actually, I have a theory rather than just a made up story even though that is where my mind likes to lead me, all the time!!!!!  From listening to Jay and Tim talk all the time I have learned a lot around here, like, if you are the first person to create a new morph you get to name it, and the snakes around here have more names attached to them than a coffee drink a Starbucks!  Like Supersupercalifragilisticexpialidocioustigersunfire citronhetalbinocalifragilisticexpialidocious

Or whatever that new snake is.  Anyways, I don’t know where the name Borneo Bateater came from with regard to the Retic/Burm mix but since he is my favorite snake here and I let him roam around in the mornings before the crowds come, this morning I had the pleasure of seeing something super awesome!  I watched quietly (believe it or not) as this beautiful creature slithered up the side of a concrete wall to a standing height of about 10 feet with room to spare on the bottom end.  So I was thinking, maybe the reason he is called a bateater is because he can stand up tall inside deep dark caves to eat yummy bats?  Or maybe he could even catch them out of the sky????  Or maybe the guy that created the first one was a big time Bat-man fan?  Either way the pics are for sure worth sharing!  I hope you all enjoy them!


Much Love,
