New Wall L Wall

It seems the improvements never stop here at The Reptile Zoo. There always seems to be someone working on a brand new upgrade for one of our many lucky reptile residents. Our team may get a little dirty, but they know how to get the job done. Even founder Jay takes the time to pitch in and get his hands (and everything else) sufficiently dirty.

But it's not just Jay working his heart out The Reptile Zoo is EXTREMELY lucky to have some of the best friends and volunteers around! Not only do our friends love visiting The Reptile Zoo they often devote much of their personal time to help make sure the doors stay open and we can keep up the hectic pace of always improving and expanding! Even while Jay is away in Europe or any of his international travels the team is here and ready to get the job done and enjoy doing it!

Our most recent project has been completely rennovating what we call the "L Wall" which houses many of our smaller species on exhibit. With these upgrades we are expanding cage sizes and rethinking the layout to provide a more diverse and interesting display that fits the unique needs of each animal. 

The "L Wall" is one of the last remaining original display areas from the beginnings of Prehistoric Pets, before we even thought to dream about the amazing transformation into The Reptile Zoo. Luckily over 20 years later we have learned to work smarter not harder which will benefit not only the current displays, but allow for easier improvements. 

We love our team and their smiling faces and bright attitudes that keep us coming back day after day to work on the never ending list of tasks. Thank you to everyone who has helped The Reptile Zoo not only on our current "L Wall" project but for the last 25 years!
