Annie- Green Anaconda

image

~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~ ♡ ~

It’s been such a pleasure to have Annie in our home. She is the greatest green anaconda i have ever held, played with and talked to.

My home is a den of snakes that ranges from a footer snakes to the biggest and longest in the world. Luckily, Sasha isn’t there yet. Sasha is one of the longest snake in the world, that reaches up to 30 feet long. Depending on snake locality, will tell you their length- as for Sasha, our tiger reticulated python, she is 2 years old and as long as 15 feet, weighing about 100 lbs-

Annie- a green anaconda is one of the biggest snake in the world, due to their size & weight reaching up to 350 lbs. Snakes are vicious in the wild, the same as dogs in the wild; they will attack and tear you to pieces. Snakes in captivity can be taught to eat specific type of food. They do not eat humans; on different circumstances they do happen unfortunately. Due to the owners lack of knowledge on how to handle a snake or they don’t know what they’re getting into-

We have snakes for the sole purpose of educational reasons. We assist in educating the public and snake enthusiasts about these barred species. Now i said barred only because people tend to freak out when they see snakes slithering about or across the yard…or when they see someone holding a snake and they walk to the opposite side, watches the show from a distance. These are the reasons why we love what we do- educating the public, schools and children and adults alike.

We organize shows and based upon requests, we attend events and identifying special ocassions- it is a fun filled experience with all the snakes we have in our zoo-den.

I encourage you to read up on some articles about these amazing species-
Until next posting everyone 🙂

Optimus

image

My little guy- so gorgeous and amazing. His pattern, his saddles, his tail and the vividness of his colour, there’s no one else like him-

image

Just gorgeous as the sun gives light to this planet- so does my Optimus. He is such a character. He’s only a baby when we took him home- 2 months i think?!

image

He is much bigger and is surely playful. He enjoys being held and loves Tristan too-

Optimus- Hypo Boa. I was so thrilled when i saw him at the reptile store. I have always appreciated the colourful snakes above all else. So when i saw Optimus, i must take him home. Luck was on my side that day, my husband bought him as a late anniversary present for me. So now you can imagine how much i just love this guy.

We took him home and soonest i parked myself inside the house, i’ve asked my kids to name a snake. Our son Tristan loves transformers so much he wanted to name him Optimus- i thought about it and realized, the name fits perfectly for this little guy.

Optimus is such a wonderful snake, not only because of his colour but his disposition as well. He is not head shy- meaning he’s accustomed to having his head touched all the time. He is such an amazing snake- i love him to pieces.

For anyone who is considering to own a snake, these babies are a good beginner snake as well 🙂 do read up about them though. Get familiar how big they get before taking one home-

Audrieanna’s feeding habit update

image

 

At last, she’s finally enjoying the art of killing her own prey.  We’ve been worried ever since we brought her home.  First, we were told she was pregnant, then we found out it was a lie.  Then there was her feeding habit of eating frozen rats.  So recently, we have finally switched her from frozen rats to live jumbo rats and now to rabbits!  Phew!  My husband is super happy now.

Dumerils Boa

Just wanted to share this experience with everyone!

Smazoo and Coco (Dumerils Boa)

These two are our rescue pet snakes.  My husband found an ad in Craigslist about snakes being tossed away.  Sometime in August 2011, he called the number listed on the ad and finally made an appointment to meet with the man and checked out the snakes.  After an hour of chatting, Nikolai has decided to take the snakes home for rescue.  You see, my husband loves snakes and enjoys caring for them and learning more of their personalities and disposition.  I enjoy researching their anatomy and characteristics as well as their origin.

I have found out that these Dumerils are natives of Madagascar, since they are extinct (in the wild), only those who owns them in captivity can/would breed to help build their population.  We are awaiting to mate these beautiful Dumerils and donate their clutch to the Madagascar Wildlife and Africa 🙂
