Fill your stockings with mambas!
There’s nothing like waking up during the holidays to a fresh carpet of snow, fixing yourself a steaming mug of hot chocolate, and finding your stocking has been filled with snakes and alligators.

Hello all animal and plant lovers/nerds!
All of the staff and animals here at Reptile Gardens are just now settling down for, what appears to be, a chilly winter season. Everything is starting to shift gears from our busy fall schedule to an all ready chock full winter list of chores and updates!
Bird Brains: Training Birds and Birds of Prey
Have you ever had someone call you a bird brain? Usually that means that they are saying you're not too smart. Yet, sometimes we use an owl as a symbol for being wise. Mixed signals, right? I think this is a pretty good example of exactly how little we know about what birds are thinking.
Unfortunately, birds can't tell us what they are thinking, so we can't be 100% certain about how they feel and what they want. However, that does make working with animals more fun. Gotta love a challenge! Instead of listening to them tell us what they think, we have to learn to pick up on their subtle hints.
