Yesterday was a good day, This young lady's mom contacted me. She is in love with reptiles, and wanted to adopt a boa constrictor. She has a corn snake, and a ball python, and wanted to add to her reptile affliction. So after a little one on one instruction, I picked out a nice male boa for her, and she took him home yesterday. She is thinking about naming him Arrow, and she literally held him in her lap all the way home. Her mom sent me these when they got home. #adopted#rescue#boaconstrictor#snakes#snakesofinstagram#snakeeducation
Attempting to stimulate this 9 foot male Burmese python to eat. In 8 months, he has shed 3x, and never eaten. He wrapped my arm good, I got the rat in for a few seconds (in the pic I am trying to keep his mouth closed), hopefully enough rat blood got in to stimulate his hunger. Took my have 5 minutes to stop throbbing and tingling from being wrapped. #rescue#burmesepython#eatingproblems#feedingproblems#snakes#snakesofinstagram
Every year, at about this time, I ask for a little help. Insurance, while we hate paying the bill, is a requirement to do the educational part of us. We charge as little as possible, so that as many parents as possible can afford it. So these big chunks of $$, take a lot to come up with. Our insurance is about $1000 a year, and we put down 50% up front. Any little bit helps! If you appreciate what we do, spread the word!

2 mare males sliders just came in.
Guys it's springtime, we need to find homes for the 15 or so sliders we have in. 7-8 males from 3-8 inches are ready to go. (Large Aquarium ok), and 7-8 females from 5-15 inches (need a pond)
This is the most common animal we rescue, and without being able to find these guys homes, we will be unable to take any more in. #redearedslider#rescue#turtle
Rescue: In the middle of three parties I just picked up this little dude with what looks like a broken leg that has been healed from a lack of calcium so the bones get soft, I'll check him out tonight #leopardgecko#rescue#mbd#lizard#lizardsofinstagram
