Reptile Zoo Pictures I went to a reptile zoo on Sunday, and it was awesome. It was hailing outside, and warm and humid inside, and I got to see all sorts of cute beasts. This albino alligator is an excellent creature, and I wanted to boop his giant nose. My boyfriend managed to capture my look of wonder. Monkey-tailed skinks look like wise old Star Wars characters. A large monitor, possibly a water monitor, but I wouldn’t swear it. An amiable box turtle buddy. African bullfrog, also known as the pixie frog. It looks like this fella may have been a rescue or caught an infection of some sort in his eye, but he seemed extremely happy and healthy in his dirt. The black mamba was very active. I think he wanted to come out and cuddle. Ornate uromastyx are gorgeous lizards. Gaboon vipers are super cute. A great and toothy boy. Green basilisk and his bromeliad. Blood python. I hold a grudge against these guys, because we had a couple at the store I used to work at, and they were snappy little jerks. Hopefully this one is more even-tempered, because she is very large. A savu python, I’m pretty sure. Apparently, their babies are plain terra-cotta colored, and they grow into this lovely iridescent sheen as they mature. Gotta have a bird-eater in any good critter collection. I’m pretty sure this one only eats roaches, though. This sulcata tortoise was busy contemplating his hay. Soft-shelled turtles have a special spot in my heart. I caught a Chinese soft-shell in a creek in San Jose as a kid, and they are really fascinating. This one was a florida soft-shell, I think.
