|Argus monitors...and how big they get.|
|It's a tigertic! For those of you who do not speak snake breeder, that means this fully-mature retic has a tiger gene. IT HAS TIGER BLOOD!|
|Me with a boa. :) And yes, I can wear a winter coat in 70-ish weather. It was cold enough outside.|
|Albino corns, but no porn.|
|A fairly standard garter snake. These are actually really cool little colubrids that deserve an entry or two if I haven't done so already.|
|Leucistic Texas Rat Snake. There were like...three. Maybe more.|
|A photo of a pink katydid, taken right here in IL.|
|Surprise retic. These usually aren't out for touching at the 'fest.|
~A snappy dwarf caiman. I have the pic of him somewhere, but something happened that made him (I think?) turn around and snap at his handler. I heard it was a bathroom break. Still could have ended nasty.
~Red-tailed ratsnakes. I did get a few shots of these, but they weren't very good. For the record, those are not beginner snakes at all, and are usually wild-caught. Hundred-Flower ratsnakes have similar issues, being very hard to take care of. Still cool reptiles, but not good pics.
~A giant tortoise that I should have gotten the species name of. My bad that I didn't. It really was an impressive animal, carrying kids on its back and all.
