Lighting It Up at Prehistoric Pets and The Reptile Zoo

When you're part of the Prehistoric Inc team, you never know what you're going to show up at work. After just a couple hours off I came back to a completely updated and lighted retail area in Prehistoric Pets plus a new display case in The Reptile Zoo!

Sometimes I think it must be little magic elves helping these project get done, which is partially right.

Over the years Prehistoric team has grown to include a huge network of friends who are happy to volunteer their spare time to make our big dreams come true and this time was no different. When it comes to construction Jay loves to work with his friends like Todd, Lance, and Buck who have each been major factors to completing this project.

Construction here has been pushed into overdrive as Jay makes his final preparations for his trip to Africa where he will be getting some great footage in Kruger National Park and visiting a local reptile breeders show. We're just glad the flight is 22 HOURS so he can finally get some rest! Becuase you know he won't rest until the shop is taken care of and all of his cool fossil finds have a beautiful place to be displayed.

Since this project is coming to a close we're already steaming towards the next which will increase accessibility in our retail area as well as provide a new cleaning station for staff to care for all of these great animals. Next time you see us the wall below will have dissapeared to make room for the crowds and new additions in Prehistoric Pets. 

Want to see the construction in action? Be sure to stop by Prehistoric Pets or The Reptile Zoo or even better you can stay at home and miss out on the dust by checking out our updated videos on our YouTube page at www.YouTube.com/PrehistoricPetsTV

Trading Up at Gecko Lofts

 

Here at The Reptile Zoo it's all about upgrade, upgrade, upgrade and the same is true for our animals! After spending 6 months at the "Crestie Condos" in Prehistoric Pets as young couples the crested geckos finally decided they wanted to start a family and really settle down. Luckily their friends the Leachies knew just the spot, "Gecko Lofts" at The Reptile Zoo.

 

 

The crested gecko families knew they couldn't go wrong with the suggestion from the Leachies. Bubbles and Squishy have been at the Gecko Lofts for over year now and enjoying the extra space along with their two cute new additions to the family. So with little hesitation they packed up their bags, gathered their furniture and moved from the Crestie Condos at Prehistoric Pets to the Gecko Lofts at The Reptile Zoo. It didn't take long for everyone to get comfortable and enjoy the sights and sounds of their new digs.

 

 

 

They've even started to blend in to their new environment. Can you count how many crested geckos are enjoying their new cage in the picture below?

 

 

Here's a close up shot of one of the crestie bellies. Check out their specially designed fingers for sticking on just about anything, including glass!

 

 

Next time you're at The Reptile Zoo be sure to check out Gecko Lofts and it's oh so cool residents!
