Subocs at the Houston Zoo

So last week I went to visit the Reptile House at the Houston Zoo, (which is where I am originally from, by the way) to look at (what else?) reptiles and to talk "Bogeys" with any zoo herp keepers that I could bother while I was there.
Andrew Godambe and Dan were both very nice and answered all of my questions. And lo and behold, there was a new first rate suboc vivarium in a showy, corner cage! This is the cage that I'm going to build to keep some of my subocs in one day...(sigh) day...

The suboc that was resting out on its rocky ledge was a large, handsome golden-yellowish orange animal, and somewhere else hidden in the cage was a silver blonde. He emerged from his subterranean retreat in the late afternoon. It was a really nice, rainy, cold, ugly day...the perfect kind of day to be at the zoo and have the entire reptile house to yourself so you can just take your time indulgently observing unmolested animals and their activities until you get your fill.
The habitat was absolutely perfect for these animals. You could just tell that the snake was quite content. Anyway, hope you get a kick out of the picture. It was a truly nice set up.

By the way, Happy New Year to All, and may you have success with your resolutions and goals for 2007 (and may you have lots of subocs too...)!
