So...what's new in the Zoo? A LOT!!


We try to keep you guys updated pretty well on what happens day-to-day here at Prehistoric Pets...so let's take a second to recap.

I just updated everyone on how well the alligator enclosure is coming along...we are just about a month away from completion!! Everyone here is SO excited because this is our biggest and most detailed yet....even bigger than Twinkie's! We had some of the guys clean it up a bit today, to get ready for painting and final preparations. Here are some "so far" pics for you:





GREAT work everyone!!



We also just got a new shipment of everyone's favorite gecko...the crested! We have some WAYYYY cool ones too, come check them out!!

There are the Red Harlequins (sweet) that range from $149.99 to $249.99


Even some Gargoyle Geckos (super cool) for $89.99


"Checkin' out my reflection..."


"Where's Waldo?"


Plus there is also a beautiful assortment of normal Cresteds with awesome coloring.



Perhaps the most excitement, however, is about a very special Asian Water Monitor named Frank. He has been a workaholic lately...Jay has been taking him to and from L.A. every week to film a new Disney Channel TV series!!!

"Jessie" will premier tonight on the Disney Channel at 9pm...so be sure to check it out to see Frank as the lovable little trouble-maker, Mr. Kipling. We are SO excited!




With all this craziness going on, we are still the same old awesome place to come have a party, feed turtles & tortoises, touch and hold snakes, and just check out some very RARE reptiles...so be sure to stop by!

See you soon!

Its FINALLY happening!! The countdown is on!!


Ok, so maybe we are roughly 500 days behind schedule...but we are finally putting the finishing touches on our Alligator & Snapping Turtle enclosure! I told you guys a few weeks ago that we had acquired the glass, and it came in just a couple days ago. Well, last night, Jay and his crew actually started putting in the pieces and we got some awesome pics and video.

The glass is INSANE. Three pieces have been put in, and they are 3 1/4, laminated, 300 lb monsters! Not only are they heavy to lift, but they are tough to install. Here are some pics from the crew's "workout"....







Once the glue was applied, it was almost a race against time to lift, correctly place, and PUSH the pieces into place. Just check out this effort and teamwork...





....and they haven't even gotten to the BIGGEST piece yet...a 600lb WHOPPER!!




Take a look at the finished half of the enclosure....you can almost visualize how awesome its gonna be!





Great job everyone!! We are so excited for the finished product!!

But remember zoo-goers...no touching!




SO EXCITED!!!

HELLLLP!!!


Emergency! (kind of)

If you don't know already...we have upgraded our tiny little party cars! We recently purchased 5 brand new Kia Souls from Kia Car Pros in Huntington Beach. They are awesome to drive, very smooth, we like them a lot.

HOWEVER, they are all white...and frankly, they blend in with the crowd WAY too much. So, our very own Laura Brewer has come up with a few ideas for wrapping the car. These are the first ideas, and we have more coming...but we just wanted to see what the public thought about them. I have attached the pics, and if you guys like any of them, just email us, call the store, comment this blog, or post a comment on any of our facebook pages, anything! PLUS, if you guys have any great ideas for wraps, give us a holler too! We would LOVE some feedback.

Here is what we have so far...



















FEEDBACK! We love it. What are your faves? What should we have on them instead??

Return of the GIANT Geckos!!


A very happy day here at the Zoo...we have Giant Geckos again!!

The New Caledonian Giant Gecko (Rhacodactylus leachianus), AKA the "Leachie"....is from various islands off the coast of Australia. They greatly resemble the little crested gecko that you know and love, just SUPER-SIZED! Leachies need many of the same things as cresties, but can also eat small mammals and lizards as well. Just to put it in perspective for you, these guys can get over a foot long, making them the largest extant gecko in the world! They are very friendly...but the locals call them the "devil in the trees" for the growling noise they make. :-O

Mandy, Laura, and I dubbed them "Bubbles" and "Squishy" from Finding Nemo. So, everyone will have to come check them out because they are the coolest looking things EVER...especially after seeing little crested geckos for the longest time, haha. But if you are too far, of course we have some great pics for you...

Bubbles!



Squishy!



Their new home!!




Even Garrett's little girl Kira was completely wowed by them...


How adorable!!


See you soon!

This Summer at THE ZOO.........


If you are looking for something to do this summer...maybe something inside away from the heat...maybe something cheap...maybe something memorable...maybe something educational, but fun (and with a hint of terror, muahaha)....

Visit The Reptile Zoo!!

If you are on vacation, we would love to have you!! You can find info on us in the latest "Huntington Beach California Official Visitor's Map" under the "Activities & Tours" section. We are among the favorite places to visit for locals...so make sure to check us out! PLUS, we just got several new additions to the zoo...including snapping turtles, alligators, and rattlesnakes!


Also, we have just finished our first annual Hands-on Reptile Adventure Camp, and it was AWESOME!



Garrett, Juliette, Laura, and all involved definitely made it memorable, educational, and tons of fun for each and every kid.





There were activities in very informative workbooks...as well as hands-on interaction with fossil-digging, plaster molds, and many COOL reptiles. Campers got to learn about (and touch!) animals that we don't even show at our regular parties!





Not only that...but everyone got a special treat when Joel Almquist from Forever Wild Exotic Animal Sanctuary visited the camp with some of his many AMAZING critters.






Even the parents got involved in the excitement when they came to get their kids each day....hard not to when the kids rambled on about what they learned, saw, touched, and held. :-D



It was truly a week to remember for all these young, future-herpetologists. Thank you everyone who signed up and everyone who participated. Next year will be even BETTER!!

Boa Babies!

Hey Guys!

We have had the most exciting day ever here at The Reptile Zoo!  The California Academy of Science came earlt this morning to take some photos of our amazing retics and to observe it's life and movement.  We got a bunch of really cute frilled lizards into the Reptile Zoo!  Laura and I had a meeting to plan lots of fun stuff for the summer (think VIP parties, snakes and movies, a scavenger hunt, Geo cashing, Buttons, stickers and maybe an employee calender?)  And then, on top of all that, a Boa had a ton of babies and we just so happened to get it all on video!

you really are missing out if you haven't come by The Reptile Zoo yet!  We miss you!  Dragon misses you, and you never know what might happen!

much love

Breakfast with Snakes & Lunches with Lizards

You gotta be crazy to work in a place like this!  All of us here, from a variety of back grounds and places, coming together for the love of animals.  Perhaps we were all nerds before?  or maybe we have become that, who knows, but the cross section of people here never ceases to amaze me, the personalities are eccentric and diverse, making everyday more fun than the next.  a good friend of mine and old school gator wrestler from Florida once told me when I was a younger and trying to take over the reptile world that "I will never be as cool as the animals I work with" at the time I thought he was stupid, but in retrospect he was right, none of us are!

Because here's what we are without them........... 

much love
