Fake looking turtle it is real though(no idea on id)


Chamelon(maybe panther?)



Butterfly fish

Red Panda


Asian pheasent(pretty cool they were in a free roaming aviary)

Nesting Flamingos

Stingray(which my classmates found odd i took pictures of it and not the mantee it was housed in haha)

Tigers beating the heat


i forget what this deer like thing is called...it was in the asia area if that helps

I keep mellers chams at home, they are the most amazing chameleon. We feed ours anoles! He's about 2 1/2 feet with his tail stretched and we can hold him!

Black breasted leaf turtle (Geoemyda spengleri), voracious eaters ,they love pinkies. Interesting courtship too, they stare at the female with their necks fully extended

thanks crpy! they sound cool are they a common hobby species
sorry it took so long,:eek:

I wouldn't' say they're common but they're around, I'll check the herp expo this month here and let you know if they have any and what prices they are asking.
we had them when I worked at the Central Fla. zoo, and actually hatched them out. The egg is over a third the females length.
