Aaah, my reptilian friends!

Remember when I mentioned that Allison and I attended a reptile show at our local botanical gardens? Well, blogosphere, guess what? I managed to get pictures! And let me tell you, I fell in LOVE with those snakes. I know that Marina wrote a post on her passion for those slithery little guys, but I didn’t understand their true loveableness until I actually got to hold some for the first time in several years. Trust me, it’s really fun. I don’t understand why they scare people- the domestic kind are completely harmless and incredibly cute. I especially love their tongues. ❤

A milk snake! I named it Fran. Fran liked to slither up my arm. Awww, Fran... I love you too. 😀

Fran and Allison were fast friends, but I'm still convinced Fran only liked her for her purse (which was snakeskin, if you didn't notice).

A lizard! We named him Erroll. He was a very nice little lizard and just sat in our hands without really doing anything.

We also got to hold this big boy. We named him Al Pacino and it took 3 of us to hold all of him.

 This is Wendell the turtle. He was peeing on me when Allison took the photo. Thanks, Wendell.

All in all I’d say that was a good day seeing that I have a newfound penchant for reptiles now. Anybody else (besides you, Marina!) like snakes? If not, why? Post your answer in the comments. 🙂

  1. I’m going to go backwards. Coz it’s more fun!
    I absolutely love snakes. Well, I love all animals. But snakes are so cute. All slithery and funny.
    You and your Fran. =]
    That turtle is totally awesome.

  2. I love snakes and reptiles. They are just so misunderstood. Cute really.

    My friends don’t understand. They are insanly terrified of them for reasons unbenoenst to me. Oh well. I better stick with you all.

    The turtle is adorable and Al Pacino is amazing 🙂


    Thanks. No, I’m slightly idiotic because I don’t want to like him. Whatever 🙂 hahahaha bloggggrooollllled. I like it 🙂

  3. oh. the joke I was going to tell you 🙂

    How can you tell if there’s an elephant under your bed?




    Your face is pressed against the ceiling!

    hahaha lame joke, I know 😀

  4. Did I tell you I’m getting 2 geckos since my mom isn’t hot on the snake thing? I’M SO EXCITED!


  5. Why yes, there are braces on my teeth! :0 I have two more months with ’em. I was SUPPOSED to get them off in May. Then it was July, then August. My orthodontists hate me. XD

    And I didn’t name Al Pacino, Allison did. She loves Al Pacino, Gary Cooper, Renaldo Lapuz, and so on. We once had a war about whether Robert DeNiro was more magical than Al Pacino while playing Apples To Apples and ended up calling, like, 10 people asking for their opinion. Al Pacino won. D:

    OH MY GOSH ASHLEY, I LOVE THAT JOKE!! XD That, my friend, is pretty epic. I am going to tell that to someone today… someone!!

    Marina, that’s awesome!! Do you have names picked out yet? Oh, and you absolutely must post pictures or do a video when you get them. What kind will they be? My brother has a leopard gecko and it’s the most adorable thing ever.

  6. Oooh reptiles, very cool 🙂
    I’m not a big fan of snakes…although I’ve held one before. I wish I could understand what they’re saying to me. Too bad I’m not a parselmouth…

  7. Ahh! i am so terrified of snakes. the lizards and the turtle are adorable, but i have some unexplained fear of legless creatures. when i was really little i wouldn’t go to the beach after i saw the little mermaid because i thought my feet would disappear. teehee… but i adore turtles and i’ve always loved lizards. no one else in my family will go near them, but i always play with the ones that sneak into our bathroom before letting them escape… ehem.. i mean, let them go…
