Candid Camera and a NEW BOA!


Good Evening Party People!

Another busy Saturday completed with a lot of teamwork, energy, and fun! Lots of guests coming in and out....lots of animals out to "play"....and of course, employees hard at work. Here are some action shots, so our viewers can have a "day in the life":

Busy little Bees....


Priscilla, cleaning a cage for a feisty Red Iguana....


Mandy, nervously "taming" a very grumpy Red-tail Boa....


Buck, working on a new enclosure....


Linda, caring for an ill turtle (awwwww)....


Uncle Louie, heading out to the fair! (visit our booth!)


Nick.....umm.....taking a break



So through all the hustle and bustle of a thoroughly busy week, we also got a new addition to The Zoo!!

This is our brand-new, female, Argentine Boa. She is a MASSIVE beauty. They are critically endangered due to habitat loss and degradation, but ongoing efforts include captive reproduction and ultimate reintroduction to surviving environments. The female Argentine Boas are among the heaviest of all boas, reportedly reaching 60 lbs or more. She is definitely a big girl and if we ever get the chance, breeding is high on our list (which would be AWESOME because as a boa, she would give LIVE birth).

She needs a name! So if anyone has a good idea...email me at:

thalia@jurassicparties.com

We will choose the best one and have a name card made for her cage, with the winner's name as well!

Here she is!




She is just gorgeous. So send those names so she can be official!

ALSO...don't forget to stop by our Prehistoric Pets booth at the OC Fair! Get info, look at awesome critters, and hold a Burm! See you there!!

Surprise Clutch!!! Always a treat for our guests....

 

We came in to work this morning and found something we always LOVE to find...a surprise clutch of eggs!  A male Brindle het Albino Retic and a female Normal het Albino Retic decided to get together and surprise us with babies!  So we are very excited for the cool things that are sure to come from it.  Hopefully some of those cool Brindle genes will pull through!

A few of our guests were lucky enough to be visiting when Jay pulled the clutch.  They got front row seats for the "show" and even got to touch the eggs after they were pulled.  How cool!  Check out the awesome action....
