    ...but he did stay at a Holiday Inn Select last night. [​IMG]

    Here's Poseidon, one of our adult male water monitors (Varanus salvator). He's a big sweetheart, and the star of our birthday parties/educational programs.

    We also have 3 albinos...here's "Lindy" our original founding male. He was destined to be a handbag until an importer acquired him from a skinning station, and subsequently sold him to us for an arm & a leg...and a kidney or two. We've produced heterozygous offspring from him & are looking forward to hatchling little "lemon dragons" his lineage someday.
