Yesterday, we went to a really neat zoo called the Texas Reptile Zoo. It was really, really cool! There was an indoor exhibit and two herpetarium exhibits and an outdoor exhibit.
My favorite thing in the indoor exhibit was the rock monitors. They were playful and funny. They climbed on top of each other on the rock, and then fell down. And they kept doing that over and over again.
The blue and green monitors were cool. The male one was really, really shy. He hides.
The herbetarium exhibits were really hot. There were lots of types of uromastyx. They have armor on. They were hiding. We got to see them, though. The owner of the place helped us to see the baby uromastyx.
There were two crocodiles. One was very, very grumpy because the water was cool. The temperature was low because Hurricane Harvey set in cooler weather. The other crocodile came out of the water. He fed it and got very near it, as you see here. Tut was the grumpy one, and Putty was the one that he fed. Tut would refuse the food if he tried to offer it to him.
The cotton-mouth turtles were really shy because they were scared after Harvey.
There was two feet of water at the outside exhibits when Harvey hit.
I want to go there again! It’s my favorite zoo I’ve ever been to!
