SNAKES ALIVE!

Hi everybody! It's Sue at the Reptile Zoo. Do you like these snakes? These are corn snakes we hatched here at the zoo a few months ago. I think they are so pretty, docile, and they almost never bite. Don't be fooled by the picture, because he was just waking up from his nap and having a nice yawn. Now that everyone is awake, come in and visit. =)

Have a nice day! <3 Sue

Hola Herpers!   The summer months are definitely heating up here at the Reptile Zoo with kids off of school, visitors on vacations and more and more new animal arrivals!  Our team is hard at work to better our Zoo and store for your education, experience and enjoyment!  With so many volunteers out at the OC Fair promoting our Reptile Zoo/Jurassic Parties booth, we are hard at work here at the home base awaiting the rest of summer’s surprises, hosting parties and giving animals to new loving homes!  Here are a few snap shots from today.

Asia meets Asia

Good Afternoon Herpers! As you all know, we have tons of species and subspecies throughout our Zoo and store that come from just about every corner of the earth! Today was a special "reunion of cultures" in the Zoo; some visitors from Korea (East Asia) got to experience a hands on 'meet and greet' with one of our Burmese Pythons, Marvin. Burmese Pythons naturally are found in Southeastern/ Southern Asia and can grow up to 23 feet in length and weigh up to 200lbs!!! Here at The Reptile Zoo, we have cage beyond cage of Burmese Pythons, Retics, Boas and our new Rattlesnake exhibit upon many more awesome animals to visit! Come in for some summer fun and say hi to Marvin and all his friends! ^O^.....Priscilla Thalia wrangles up the big Burm as our Korean visitors snap a memorable shot!

Pic of the day Tie!

Hey there Herpers!

As usual, the Zoo is boomin' with guests from around the world visiting the creatures of others homelands.  Today was especially busy for our beautiful White-Sided Ratsnake which was recently added to our Zoo pet list.  Reaching over 5 feet long, this brilliant beauty was arm, neck AND eye candy for all who stopped by.  Here are the top shots from todays early bird visitors.

Bull Snakes!

Hey there Herpers!  Todays Jurassic Fact of The Day comes from right here in Northern America!  Many of you may have attended a Jurassic Party here or had a presentation at home and undoubtedly you had a chance to see a Bull Snake up close and personal.  Bull snakes average about 6 feet in length, and varieties of up to a little over 8 feet have been documented!  Bull snakes somewhat resemble the Western Diamondback Rattler, which is also common within the same area. The bull snakes take advantage of this likeness by performing an impressive rattlesnake impression when threatened! First, it hisses which creates a very convincing "rattle" sound. It will also imitate a rattlesnake-like "S-curve" body posture, as if it is going to strike. It will commonly vibrate its tail quickly between the brush and leaves, and flatten its head to make it look like the triangle shaped head of the rattlesnake.  Compared to rattlesnakes, which usually keep their tail raised in order to make the most effective rattle, bull snakes tend to keep their tail in contact with the ground, in order to hit it against something to make a sound.  Intrigued?  Well luckily, here at The Reptile Zoo we have a new Rattlesnake exhibit available for viewing so you can see and compare for yourself!

See You Soon!..............Priscilla ^O^

Our Reptiles Know No Bounds

Hey Herpers

Today is a special day as we gear up an awesome shipment of boas, retics and ball pythons to our distributer (Arno Naude) in South Africa. Just look at how many snakes are about to cross boarders, and for some the chance to go back to their mother land haha. This shipment is HUGE!

The process is crazy complicated and requires many permits and legal fees that can cost up to $2000 per customer if they don't go through one of our distributers. However, we make it easy for reptiles to cross global borders by having a "middle-man" in almost every continent! So far, we have one in the UK, Africa and another in Asia.

Here's a pic of Garrett busy at work organizing all the paperwork and information that it takes to make these deals happen :)

You may remember Arno Naude as the guy that Jay visited during his first trip to South Africa. If you've forgotten, here's a link to our video of one of their cool adventures!

And if any of you are reading from one of the mentioned continents and are interested in having your own reptile, you can contact one of our distributers who can help you out! It's a great way to avoid those crazy fees and get the reptile that you've always wanted to own :).

Have a great day! :D
