Its FINALLY happening!! The countdown is on!!


Ok, so maybe we are roughly 500 days behind schedule...but we are finally putting the finishing touches on our Alligator & Snapping Turtle enclosure! I told you guys a few weeks ago that we had acquired the glass, and it came in just a couple days ago. Well, last night, Jay and his crew actually started putting in the pieces and we got some awesome pics and video.

The glass is INSANE. Three pieces have been put in, and they are 3 1/4, laminated, 300 lb monsters! Not only are they heavy to lift, but they are tough to install. Here are some pics from the crew's "workout"....







Once the glue was applied, it was almost a race against time to lift, correctly place, and PUSH the pieces into place. Just check out this effort and teamwork...





....and they haven't even gotten to the BIGGEST piece yet...a 600lb WHOPPER!!




Take a look at the finished half of the enclosure....you can almost visualize how awesome its gonna be!





Great job everyone!! We are so excited for the finished product!!

But remember zoo-goers...no touching!




SO EXCITED!!!

Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount work? I am brand new to blogging but I do write in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
