Happy SUNday! – Snake House

A wonderful surprise in our side garden. Looks like she found the perfect home. I believe it’s a southern black racer – a frequent resident of our garden habitats.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by! – Chris

In the Garden – Good morning reptiles!

I went out to check the bird feeder early this morning and was rewarded by a visit from a couple of my garden residents.

This river cooter is a regular because I’m lucky to have a nice natural bog and pond in the woods behind my house and although it’s a turtle “Disneyland” back there they do enjoy getting out and about and catching some sun. This gal is about football sized as a point of reference.

One of the hundreds, yes hundreds of lizards in my yard. This one normally hangs out on the fence but almost always catches the first rays of sun on these rocks.

The dogwood is finally getting its leaves – it’s always a late “bloomer” but this year it was particularly slow. This one was started from a tiny tiny seedling sent to me by the Arbor Day Foundation – it’s taken about 8 years just to get to be about 5 feet tall and has yet to bloom.

At the Zoo – Lion Country Safari, Florida

Lion Country Safari is located in Palm Beach County, Florida. It’s one of the better “drive-thru” safari parks in the US. Here are a few images from a trip back in October 1993.

Camera and Film: Canon F-1 with Canon FD 80-200mm Zoom Lens on Kodak Kodacolor

Scanner: Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II

These next two images were taken at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens (Florida) in 1999 OR at Busch Gardens, Tampa Bay OR at Lion Country Safari – I’m sorry to say that I didn’t record their origin properly.

Grévy’s zebra

The markings on these zebra are amazing – if you look closely it’s actually difficult to distinguish where one animal begins and another ends when they are in a herd.

Here’s a great link to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens with some interesting info about these zebras.

BTW, she’s OK and soon left on her own accord to hang at the bog.
