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!

Red on black, friend of jack... That'd be more than likely a Milk Snake. I love snakes. ^_^

And can I just say you are truely lucky to be able to be around these awesome creatures. =) I would kill to be able to volunteer at a place like this. Reptiles are such fascinating animals.

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
