Cuban Tree Frog (invasive species from Cuba that's currently wiping out all the Florida green tree frogs)

Florida Banded water snake

Eastern King Snake (this guy is super sweet and used for handling!)

Florida Pine Snake (looks grumpy but also very tame and used for handling)

Yellow Rat Snake

Main exhibit in the center with alligators and various florida sp. of turtle

We JUST opened the new FROGS exhibit. I didn't get any pictures except of this guy, I'll try and get some on my next trip out.

This guy is our little waxy monkey tree frog. Haha he doesn't move, he just kinda falls asleep wherever he lands.

On his way to the exhibit.

Sitting on his perch in the exhibit.

More to come!

Yeah I was looking at milk snakes and the scarlet king snake. I think you are correct with the milk snake. Haha I'll just have to check the sign the next time I go. :p

Interesting animals. That have to be a great place to volunteer at .

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
