    They say to find something you love & call it work, right? Lucky for me, "work" means coming into contact with LOTS of different animals. ...of which I don't mind posting pics...trespassers will be EATEN! [​IMG]

    Wow you're in NH? What do you do about the winter? So cool, I would love to have a job working with exotics or animals of any kind. Do you allow visitors?

    Quote:We have 2 locations. Our main location provides space for the outdoor critters during the summer & is also home to our retail store & breeding facility, and our 2nd place has indoor, winter housing for the gator & tortoises.

    Drop me a PM if you'd like to set up a tour sometime. I'd be happy to show you around! [​IMG]

    although she really loves pizza:

    What you need to do for her birthday is call up Pizza Pizza, see if they will deliver an extra large, double cheese, double rat, hold the pepperoni.

    Great pix,

    Jess loves the snakes I went wizzing past so I wouldn't faint, and I loved that Owl. I would give anything to hold an owl like that and look at it's face and in it's eyes. That is cool beyond words.
