Reptile and Amphibian Zoo

We have had this zoo in our town for over a year.  But never really had a great desire to go there.  Until today!  We've been talking about animals and their different groups....including reptiles and amphibians, so I thought this would be the perfect place for a Field Trip!

Turns out it was a big hit because we were there for over 2 hours.  And it was during lunch time and even when I said we should go get something to eat they were having too much fun and didn't want to leave!

Here's some highlights!

 These guys are buddies.  He has his arm around him. Isn't that sweet?!
I think he just wanted to get in the water and didn't care if he walked over the turtle to get there.  But I like the idea of them being buddies instead. :)

 You've got to check out this guy!  He is HUGE!

 These snakes scared me.  They were just laying there, and then Monkey puts his finger up to the glass to point to them, and the big snake launches his head up and bangs it against the glass.  He was trying to eat Monkey's finger!

 I thought it was so cute how this guy was sitting and holding on to this little branch.

 They got to touch an alligator!

This was funny too....they got to hold a snake, and Monkey was all for it until.....

 it started getting closer to his face.
Then he didn't care for it as much!

 I was holding the snake too!  It's very soft and smooth.  
But once it started trying to climb up my arm I had also had enough! :)  

Did you notice the difference in these 2 pictures?  
The worker was holding a cricket for the chameleon to eat....
first he's eyeing it...then BAM!  
Quickly out comes the tongue to snatch up his lunch!  
Good aim!

We had such a good time I think we just may have to go back again.  They even have a family rate for the whole year.  That'd be cool to get to go there whenever you want!  I want to go back to see them feed the BIG Alligator.  They only feed him on Saturday's and Sunday's.

Well....maybe you have a hidden little field trip in your area that you haven't taken advantage of!  Check it out!  It just may be the best part of the day!
