The Circle of Life

I have been waiting for Jay to get back from the Reptile Show in Chicago to write this blog and he finally got back today, unfortunately I did not have good news for him upon his return and he is very sad about something that happened in his absence.  Jay and I have talked in depth about what I am about to share with you and it has been decided that since you are all reptile lovers and part of the Prehistoric Pets/Reptile Zoo family that we could share an unfortunate loss with all of you, as well as a bright outlook for the future.

This blog will incorporate both happiness and sadness so if you are faint of heart you might like to stop reading now.  This is real life, and in real life things happen that are beyond our control, nature is nature and as much as we wish that every creature could live forever it is impossibility

That being said we have had a female veiled chameleon named Jenny for a while now that was gravid.  We noticed early on the Jenny was not doing well and we set her up and set her up time and time again and for a while she would do well, but in the end she unfortunately passed away.  Jay and all of us here are sad to have seen her go.

When she passed she was full of eggs that were ready to come out, the loss of Jenny hurt us all but we did not believe that her eggs should have to suffer the same fate.  She had lived a long and happy life and we thought we should try and at least save her babies.  The eggs were removed from Jenny and have been placed in an incubator and we all hope that they will live.  It is my understanding that this has been attempted before but without success.

We all hope and pray that Jenny’s eggs will eventually hatch and that they will all grow up to live long and happy lives, that is the way we believe Jenny would have wanted it.  We hope that you agree and are with us on this one as well.

The pictures below are shocking, but it is not very often an event like this occurs and we hope the utmost discretion and sensitivity is used in their viewing and the dialouge that follows as well.

Thank you,

Savannah

Baby Chameleons!

We have had a bunch of baby veiled chameleons here for a while now and we are growing them up so that we can give them a great home soon!  This morning we had a visit from one of our favorite kids who was dying to hold one of "the little rascals" as he so eloquently puts it, and we always aim to please here at the Reptile Zoo!!!!  The more people come to visit us, the more we get to know them and they eventually become part of our family too.  A pet is a lifetime investment and we like to share with you all and be part of the ride!  We love it when people take home pets from here and then bring them back by to visit us when the come to pick up feeders, be that crickets, worms, pre-packaged food or mice.  The animals, the customers, the kids and even the grandparents all become part of our big and growing family here!  And we love you all...

but we are especially fond of you Ross!!!!  And we are so glad you decided to have a Jurassic Party here so we could all get to know you!  See you again soon we hope!

Much love
