LIVE From Fountain Valley, It's SATURDAY!

Talk about CrAzY Saturdays Fans!  I suppose you could say it’s a typical weekend for us, jamming with party families and future Herp owners.  It’s amazing to see the contrast between normal work days and the weekends; the shop goes from cricket quiet to screamin’ loud!  Not that we mind, it’s always so much fun to join in the festivities of all the happy families and also help amateurs become professional reptile handlers and owners.  Wonder what it must be like in the Reptile Zoo while we host our back to back Jurassic Parties?  One word…. HECTIC!  Here’s just a glimpse or two.

WOW that’s a LOT of people!  That definitely makes for a quick, easy and FUN work day for us.  Of course, when we aren’t caring for, cleaning after or checking on all our reptile friends, we are plotting.  Yes…. plotting.  Don’t you remember that tomorrow is the “oh so special” April Fools Day?!  Again, this holiday of pranks is upon us and I’m sure most of you are only counting the seconds until it’s over.  However, we gotta have a little fun here in the shop. ;)  Frank thought he’d get an extra early start and decided to sneak his way into Buddy’s cage while he was out doing a quick photo shoot with some party kids.  Hee Hee, As you can see, he was BUSTED before he could finish the prank!  Silly Frank, Tricks are for kids =P

As for the rest of the animals, they can’t focus too much on the prospect of perfect pranks when they need to have energy for their presentations.  Hey, who knows, maybe THEY are plotting this year’s perfect reptile prank…..o.O.  Hmmmmm, what do you think they will do?  WE MUST BE PREPARED!  With all the “ammo” we could use when working at a reptile shop for April Fool’s, I think maybe we should be more nervous around each other rather than worrying over our reptilious friends.  ;D

**BEWARE of what hides behind your decorations!** ;D

Michelle told Nick to eat on his lunch....this is what happens when you disobey O.O

It’s time to start counting down to one of the years funniest and most anxiety ridden holidays!  Have any cool reptile pranks??  Share them with us!  Have a great weekend guys and see you tomorrow!

Ciao!

INSANITY!!!!

It’s an insane day here at The Reptile Zoo, with over 200 guests already accounted for by 12pm, and that’s JUST the IN STORE parties!  From 10am, an hour before actual opening, to 6pm was stacked with party animals and reptiles too! ;P  With so many people to attend to already, not to mention the customers here for animals purchases, feed, and the zoo; EVERYONE is running around crazy!

Just L@@k at the flood of people attending JUST Nick’s party for Nyaa’s birthday!!

Between parties, the guests in our zoo as well as lingering party people were able to witness one of the FIRST LIVE monitor feeding in their new humble abode!  All that breeding they’ve been doing all week and all DAY sure have worked up a “Monitorus” appetite =P.  An even COOLER happening in the zoo today was a rare sighting indeed.  One of our monitors stayed suburged under water for over 20 minutes!  Just taking a little stroll I suppose, but pretty awesome to witness nonetheless!  VERY RARE sighting!  L@@K!

Later after Nick’s party, I had a blast with Mallory and her friends and family.  Everyone was more than willing to pet and even HOLD majority of all our friendly critters, especially the ARACHNIDS!  Loud and proud the party attendees were chucking out question after question; yelp of excitement and giggles of joy!  I was more than pumped to accommodate their needs and show them a REAL One of a kind experience!

It’s a bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Superman! Nope….it’s BETTER!  It’s everyone’s favorite, blast from the past, Mike McConnell!  Infamous for his courageous and daring antics during his presentations, he has a natural knack for nabbing everyone’s full attention and interest (No it’s not just because he has half a finger ;P).   Across the shop you could hear the excited “Ooh’s” and “aww’s” creeping out of the presentation room, with an occasional “AAAAHHHH!”. 

Right when the parties end and we think the madness is over, we look up a BEHOLD!  Waves of Reptile Zoo guests rushing in to check out the zoo and visit Twinkie and Frank!  Today surley was a day to PARTYYY!!  Book your party today and experience the FUN you've been hearing about!  It'S OuT oF CoNtRoL!!! <3
