I Found this old VHS today. Between The Crocodile hunter, Kratts creatures, and Henry the lizard, while growing up, my fate as a reptile person was sealed. What sparked your interest in reptiles?

This big girl built her nest this week and has been chasing everyone away from her burrow. Hopefully she will be laying her eggs soon!! .

Eastern green mambas are the smallest of four species of mamba in the world but that does not make them any less of an impressive snake. #greenmambasmatter

I’m glad to say Esmeralda our new emerald tree boa is taking frozen thawed rodents and doing great. We finally got to move her onto display today. .

*Feeding Video*
I took this during a feeding demonstration at the Westin resort in Scottsdale. During the demonstation I talk about how  rattlesnakes are ambush predators and how their venom is  the only way they can  aquire food. Venom is only used as a deffence when it is a last resort. No rattlesnake ever wants to bite anyone.

*The rat was a pre-killed frozen thaw*

When I saw this pot sitting in our pile of cage decor all I could think was that this pot needs a cobra in it.  It looks like our Pakistani cobra agreed! 😂 .

Found this little guy while at our favorite swimming hole over the weekend. Arizona is home to over 40 species of scorpion.
