Posted in Pets, Snakes, Uncategorized, Venomous with tags , , on 6 July 2016 by rainforestexotics

So we have these killer beauties and there is no way we can separate them anytime soon. Zeus and Athena are Salem’s parents. The little albino monocled in the earlier blog. These two are my husband’s favourite to work with. Β Not only they are smart, they ar entertaining as well.

Just the way they are everyday 🐍

And yes, it certainly is the best view ever.

Thank you everyone for visiting.

I had the opportunity to photograph a couple of our anacondas this weekend. Annie, Max and Echo are the sweetest anacondas I had ever held, played and met in my years of handling snakes. They also enjoy getting their photos taken. So here are some photos I’d like to share-

Annies favourite keeper, her daddy.

Here is Max, our yellow anaconda. Another sweet and well behaved girl.

Echo here is a higher yellow with darker blacks-

Though these slithering scales takes a while to grow, I am excited to see just how big they can get.

Until next time folks and thank you for visiting.

Venomous Feeding Day

Posted in Snakes, Uncategorized, Venomous with tags , , , on 4 June 2016 by rainforestexotics

So today is a special feeding day… its venomous day-

One male albino monocled cobra my husband’s favourite pet of all time.

Honestly, I am afraid of Zeus and Athena. Yes, they’ve been a long time mate and to be honest, it’s hard to separate them when Zeus doesn’t allow it. So feeding day is truly the hardest when it comes to these two.

It’s that day again- one of my most favourite days with our pets is feeding day. This allows me to see just how capable they are of anything. I have so much respect for these creatures.

Tristan and a purple phase retic-

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on 23 February 2014 by rainforestexotics

Tristan is our five year old son. He was about 2 years old, when my husband started his snake collection again- When we brought home a columbian boa, Tristan was so happy, (his thoughts) this giant snake is coming home with us.
As our snake collection grew, Tristan has developed his own favourite snakes. The bigger and colourful they are, they are his bests. So here’s one of his favourite baby snake-

Tristan loves all the snakes and he remembers those that have passed, including those we have fostered. He enjoys the reptiles we keep and someday, he will have a zoo of his own, ‘he exclaimed valiantly’ 😄

Hermann’s Tortoise named QB

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on 7 September 2013 by rainforestexotics

A tortoise is what my kids always asks for when we take a trip to the local pet stores-

Last week, we all took the kids to one of the bigger pet store in the east bay- there were plenty to look at and marveled at the size of full grown reptiles that were displayed. To say the least, my kids were paneled at the tortoise’s section. So my eldest daughter wanted a tortoise. She checked out their selections, from the russian tortoises to the sulcatas, to the greeks and finally chose hermann’s tortoise. She wanted something that doesn’t get too big- so we’re settled with the baby hermann’s tortoise-

image

My daughter was so eager to take his home and enjoy her tortoise. Her younger siblings encouraged her to name her lifetime pet. So my daughter decided on the name ‘QB’…

image

QB is only a baby, a good one month old hatchling. He is the biggest of his clutch and enjoys to eat, so his survival rate is higher than the rest. We went home with a care sheet and instructions. We had a long day that day, so wherever we went QB came with us-

image

Just in thst brief moment, people were attracted to him…how cute he is and a delight to see- as you can see, his photos speaks for itself.

image

He loves to eat and bask…soon enough he will enjoy the sunlight. For now, until he’s a few months older, we cannot play or hold QB…he must be fed regularly and soaked in water for thirty minutes daily. It is to make sure he is hydrated enough to avoid getting sick.

image

Just as you can see, QB is enjoying his time in his new environment-
