Forever Wild and RaTtLeSnAkEs at The Reptile Zoo!!


Big Day.......no, HUGE DAY!

It's awesomely chaotic here at The Reptile Zoo today. Lots of guests coming in to see our newely-displayed, local-species rattlesnakes, which include a Southern Pacific, a Western Diamondback, an ALBINO Western Diamondback, and a Colorado Desert Sidewinder! After almost a year of waiting, they are finally open to see at your leisure!




Come visit The Zoo to get up close and personal with these exhibits!!

Also.......TODAY ONLY.....from 5-10pm, Joel Almquist from Forever Wild will be here with a Kinkajou, a Parrot, a Snapping Turtle, and an American Alligator! You can't miss it!



There are also a ton of changes going on. We are giving our shop a make-over! So, we apologize for the bit of mess and noise, but please come on in and join the party!!



As always, there is so much to see and do here. We are not only featuring our newest creatures...but also the ones you know and love! Come see Twinkie, the world's largest snake....Thelma and Louise, the two-headed Texas Rat Snake.....Ninja, the eyeless python.....Sonny, the albino iguana.....George, the 200-lb Tortoise.....and so much more!!

Come meet the new addition to our decor as well: Adam, the 13-foot 50%-scale MALE T-Rex, created by Frausto and Darrow Stretz...It's rare to see a model of a male T-rex (they have the spines down the back). He's a recycled dino...made out of plastic bags (paper-mache fashion), and was originally made for a Smithsonian traveling-gallery. Wicked!




PHEW! That's a lot going on in one day...but man are these guests enjoying it. Not only that, but we, the employees, are SOOOOOO excited!

Oh! and I almost forgot...we also got a surprise this morning....about 8 or 9 baby Colombian Rainbow Boas appeared next to their mommy and daddy today. They didn't want to be late for the PARTY!!



Admission is the same, but the experience is even bigger today! So come visit us, and see things that you have never seen before!
