Flashback/Flashforward The Reptile Zoo Masquerade

 

With all the plans for this year's event we couldn't help but get a bit nostaglic about our suprise hit in 2011. At the beginning of the day as we were finishing up the last minute details we had no idea what to expect or if anyone was even coming, but come they did and in droves!

 

 

With over 300 costume clad guests you couldn't help but get in a festive mood. The special guests like Frank aka Kipling from Disney Channel's JESSIE, the Forever Wild team with an adorable baby Tiger and brand new exhibits from The Reptile Zoo including the official unveilling of Gator Island and our California Native Rattlesnake collection!

 

 

If that wasn't enough to keep guests entertained we also had LIVE exotic animal demonstrations with veteran TV and Film trainer Jules Sylvester and The Reptile Zoo founder Jay Brewer where guests enjoyed learning about various venomous species and even got a chance to watch a clutch of pythons be born and filmed for the popular YouTube channel www.YouTube.com/PrehistoricPetsTV

 

To satisfy their taste buds GarlicScapes was on hand with plenty of good eats sure to keep the lurking vampires away. Let's just say fun was had by all.

 

 

But enough reminiscing, this year we are going to blow last year out of the water with all the great things we have planned for what we expect to be a MASSIVE crowd! First of all we've doubled our food truck capacity by bringing the ever popular Kogi BBQ and Chunk-n-Chip trucks to delight both your dinner and dessert needs.

Next we've added jungle themed BOUNCE HOUSES from Orange County Jumpers!

 

Oh did we forget to mention benefit recipient Forever Wild Exotic Animal Sanctuary will be bringing a BLACK LEOPARD and baby Bobcats!!!

Are you totally jealous now? Can't make it? Don't worry we haven't left you out of all the fun. This week on The Reptile Zoo facebook page we've got some great online auction items for you to take home. Just check out these beautiful animals below.

The Talented Mr. Kipling


Again??? Yes...again....we are just so proud of our little Frank and what an awesome job he's doing on his new TV show.




For those who don't know...real quick, our very own Frank, the Asian Water Monitor, was chosen to be a key part in the new Disney Channel show, Jessie. He plays the outrageous Mr. Kipling, and if you haven't seen it yet....well, its absolutely hilarious. Especially for those who know how monitors REALLY act. :-P So, I found a video of the second episode, and you MUST check it out....its so funny.




Its also very exciting. Its so cool to see him on TV after working around him for so long. He's like our shop pet. Frank is SO friendly, and the Disney cast loves him as well!   We saw his official "script", which was so cute...they have SFX of hissing for him, and he "flirts" with a toy dinosaur!

So, check out the video, AND the TV show, AAANNND come in to visit Frank here at Prehistoric Pets!!!

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!
