Mini's, Monsters and More!

Hello fellow Herpers! Today I'm bringing you some cool photos of some babies and monsters we have here in the store. First off, we were fortunate enough today to have Garrett bring out a clutch of Ball Python eggs and educated us on breeding habits, hatch-ling care and more. Soon after, our Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula stole the show, flashing us his enormous size and preforming a trick or two. This Goliath tarantula can reach up to 12" in size, which is about the size of a dinner plate! Although not fatal to humans, it has fangs are about 1 1/2" long and they inject juices that break down soft tissue so that the spider can slurp up its meal! Afterward, we learned about our Pig-Nosed Turtles which are slow-growing, but an adult can reach 22". At the end of such a busy day, I spent just a second of time helping out Garrett with one of our Retics and got my first hands on experience and photo op! There's so much going on here at The Reptile Zoo now that summer is here, Come on down and say hello to all your favorite friends and spend some summer days with us all! ^o^.......Priscilla Garrett and Ball Python clutch I AM TarantulaMan!

Fun with Fly river turtles!

Hey Guys!~

Me and Sam have been studying the fly river turtles we have here in the reptile zoo and they always look like they are having the most fun ever! They soar through their home like some sort of underwater pig nosed birds.  We love them!  Their little faces are the cutest things I've ever seen!!!!!  The other day Sam and I decided that their home needed a cleaning and we both went to work together on the project!  Step one, catching them!  Hahahahahhahaha, I volunteered of course because, well, I love to play in the water and catching things is on of my favorite things to do!  Sam said they were going to bite me but they didn't, the only things that bite me around here are the snakes and people!  I would like to say a big thank you to our assistant and to our photographer, they are pictured below! 


much love,
