Meet our Pets of the Day: Reptiles!
(REPTILE EXPO)- This fat-tailed gecko is perfect for a started reptile pet. Geckos are insect eaters and have the ability to regrow their tail! They make excellent beginner reptiles, and there will be some leopard geckos (closely related to tat-tails) available at the Expo. The milksnake mimic the coral snakes in the southern US, and get their name from when farmers used to think they were stealing their cows’ milk (which isn’t true). They make great snakes for beginners! The boa constrictor snake is fully grown at around 7.5 feet, although females generally get larger than males (which is typical in the snake world). He weighs roughly 20 pounds and is 12 years old (they live to around 20-25).
If you would like to adopt one of these spectacular reptiles, you can find them at the Reptile Expo!
