Вот вам немного животных сотрудников) На фото - водяной варан или varanus salvator. Очень красивая и желанная многими ящерица. Но из-за своих размеров и характера не каждый может себе позволить ее завести. Например, именно этот варан никак не поддается приручению, очень пугливый и даже не ест при людях. Но и хозяин не уделяет ему достаточно времени, чтобы, так сказать, социализировать животное🤣 В общем, прежде чем заводить варана - много раз подумайте, сможете ли вы уделить ему достаточное количество времени🙄 Если ответ "нет", то подумайте над кем-то хотя бы поменьше😁 Вам подойдут агамы, плащеноски, сцинки и другие ящерицы среднего размера) С ними будет проще и в содержании и в общении) варан водянойваран продажарептилий продажаамфибий рептилии зоомагазин экзотика планетаэкзотики магазинрептилий varanussalvator reptiles planetexotic exotic

Ariel relaxing on a heating pad next to me! I have a temperature gun and always make sure the temperature is safe before letting her lay on it when she is out with me. I can't even explain how much I love this snake.

Acá en Puerto Rico, es común escuchar del temor y asco que provocan “las salamandras” que las personas encuentran durante la noche dentro de sus casas. Sin embargo, estas “salamandras” NO son en realidad salamandras verdaderas del orden Urodela (“anfibios con cola”), sino reptiles del orden Squamata (“escamados”) junto con los lagartos y las serpientes. De hecho, ni en Puerto Rico ni en ninguna otra de las islas del Caribe, existen salamandras verdaderas al menos por los pasados 20 millones de años Estos reptiles escamados llamados gecos o “geckos” (en inglés), son especies originalmente de África que llegaron accidentalmente a América a través de la dispersión humana. Esta especie es predominantemente urbana, por lo que favorece los hábitats humanos dentro y fuera de las casas Estos gecos son de habito nocturno, lo que significa que estará activo de noche, alimentandose de insectos y artrópodos que encuentra en las paredes y bombillas de las casas. Por esto, se considera una especie beneficiosa para los humanos al tratarse de una especie que actúa como control de plagas y de otros insectos molestosos, particularmente dentro de la casa Uno de los mayores miedos de las personas para con este geco surge por la mala suerte de dejarse caer de la pared o techo en el justo y preciso momento en que una persona esta pasando. Este comportamiento ocurre como una respuesta de escape y no como defensa para “morder” o “atacar” a la persona La realidad es que son reptiles inofensivos, con ojos y pupilas grandes para absorber la mayor cantidad de luz en la oscuridad y que consumen insectos como moscas y cucarachas que no nos gustan. Por tal razón, no debemos matarlos por puro temor y capricho. gecko hemidactylus salamandra puertorico cienciasolidaria biologia zoologia cienciaatualcance cienciaparatodos reptiles squamata postoftheday science animalfacts

Ever wondered how to mark snakes for mark-release-recapture studies? (probably not but now you will) Was so cool to see textbook come alive and watch a real life herptologist clipping the ventral scales of this honduran lizard eating snake. Aka an awesome universal code! All starts with a marker scale and then you count up depending on the day, month and year, a better explanation if you swipe right. 🐍 🐍 🐍 snakes snake herptology reptile reptiles zoo zoology naturalhistory naturalhistorymuseum zoologist animals prevet vet veterinarymedicine vetschool exoticanimals attenborough davidattenborough planetearth wildlife wildlifephotography conservation wildlifeconservation

On a mission to pinkify Opal’s enclosure 😘💘 Loving the new water dish from stroodies , I think that’s Opal’s color ✨ I’d like to replace her moist & warm hides but I’m also super indecisive! She likes having a very dark warm hide because of her sensitive eyes, but it takes up so much room (she has a 9” black box hide currently). What to do? • stroodies opaltheleo leopardgecko leopardgeckosofinstagram reptiles reptilesofinstagram petsofinstagram petstagram ヒョウモントカゲモドキ レオパ 爬虫類 geckstagram humpday

SoooNational Zookeeper Week is upon us I thought I’d share some of the things that I love about my job and make me proud to be a reptile keeper at the Desert Museum! I feel so fortunate to have this dream job, and everyday I’m thankful for the unique things I get to experience. I love working in a department with the “not so cute and fuzzy animals”—i.e. the reptiles, amphibians, bugs, and fish! I grew up with snakes from the time I was 10 years old, and always had an interest in bugs that wasn’t really shared by anyone in my family. Both reptiles and bugs are a bit harder to love for most people, when compared to the more charismatic mammals and birds in the animal world. That’s why I LOVE having the opportunity to show people why the “creepy crawlies” need love too! Reptiles and invertebrates are generally peaceful, calm critters that just want to live their life and don’t really want anything to do with us GIANT scary humans. I’ll elaborate as I continue to share pictures throughout the week in honor of National Zookeeper week. 😊🐍🕷🦎🐢🦂🐝🐸 tarantula elgariakingii alligatorlizard inciliusalvarius sonorandeserttoad rattlesnakefangs terrapeneornata boxturtle sauromalusvarius chuckwalla sauromalusater babyreptiles babychuckwalla rattlesnake atrox hornedlizard phrynosomasolare nationalzookeeperweek zookeeper reptilekeeper reptiles lovecreepycrawlies lovebugs invertebratesofinstagram reptilesofinstagram lovemyjob desertmuseum seetucson sonorandesert desertwildlife

My beautiful girlfriend heatherrenee.la and I have been together for over 5 years and we decided it's time for a baby A baby reptile. We are proud parents of a handsome chameleon named Yoshi. This is a magical moment when we first met back in February. 💚
