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!
